Jabadaw play either English Ceilidh or French/Breton events - if you are lucky you'll get a bit of both, a bourrée in the middle of a ceilidh or some close-to-the-ground tune for a what a few minutes before had been an English Dance.

Generally a softer approach than, saw Cock and Bull, a little fuller sound than the Eel Grinders, and swing by the bucketload. A Webfeet five star seal of approval.
