Performance experience

Absolutely Legless, a traditional Irish Dance Group based in Edinburgh is a vibrant group of over 40 dancers and musicians who have developed a reputation for exciting and innovative performances throughout the world.

Inspired by the Irish hard and soft shoe traditions, Absolutely Legless perform original dances in a relaxed and informal manner while remaining faithful to their roots. The dancers combine the grace of the soft shoes with the power and rhythmic precision of the hard shoes to provide a truly exhilarating experience.

This approach is reflected in the music from the band. The unique line-up of fiddles, flutes and guitar play new arrangements of traditional and original airs, jigs and reels.

This combination of the energy of the dancers and Celtic rhythms of the band entertains audiences every time and Absolutely Legless are well-received wherever they appear.
