“Music has played an important part in the celtic society for centuries. It has been the glue of the community in times of trouble as well as in times of celebration. It is from this desire to be that glue of the community that Sliotar got started. From the early days of playing The Porterhouse Des Gorevan, Ray MacCormac and J.P. Kallio have navigated their crew of three to become a regular feature on the European festival scene. Their live show is known to have addictive quality, that the bands followers travel far and beyond to hear. It is celtic music that connect people. 
 Sliotar has been pushing the boundaries of modern folk and celtic music for two decades and you can hear this experience in their sound. The heavily jazz influenced drumming of Des Gorevan and the powerful DADGAD guitar work of Finnish born J.P. Kallio build amazingly tight foundation for Ray MacCormac’s Uilleann pipes and whistles. The dance tunes get even the most preserved audience tapping their foot. The songs are a mixture of Ray’s heartfelt a cappella songs and J.P.s self composed modern folk songs. You can hear all walks of life in Sliotar’s music.”
