Arquebus are a three piece act made up of Alex on fiddle, Sam on bouzouki & vocals and Sarah on bass & mandolin. Playing a well balanced mix of traditional tunes and songs as well as their own material, all done in their own upbeat, modern foot tapping style. The trio who hail from Somerset and have been going from strength to strength since they formed last year, and enjoying every second of it. All three members are regulars on the ceilidh circuit having met playing in barn dance bands in the west country some years ago. This influence is seen in their love of traditional fiddle tunes, which when combined with some funky bass, percussive bouzouki and possibly the odd beer makes for a good old foot stomping time.
