Enlarge this picture! This band was formed when Patrick McMullan arrived in Hungary and through Mónika Varga, the bodhrán-player, met Péter Pejtsik, the cellist of After Crying. They played for a while in this trio formation performing arrangement of traditional Irish folk-songs and ballads. Lately the trio was joined by Ferenc Torma, the guitarist of After Crying, who plays on bouzouki and synthesiser beside the guitars. Since Mónika Varga has gone for maternity leave the band are working as a trio again. Participation of the two A.C. member adds something special to their music. It is much more an adventurous trip in the field of folk-rock flavoured with progressive style, than another, umpteen form of traditional celtic folk music arrangements.
