Round the Bend


Imagine.... rugged coasts, ancient castles, quaint cottages, cozy pubs, and slightly quirky "British humour" ...something new around every bend in the road.... Through their music, songs & stories, husband & wife duo Paul & Susan Hammer, along with Susan's brother Ray Moss, take you on a journey bringing to life the heart and soul of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.    From Medieval melodies to rollicking Irish jigs & haunting laments; from traditional folk songs to contemporary ballads; from favourite pub sing-alongs to popular songs from the War Years... this multi-talented trio delights audiences of all ages. Susan & Paul as multi-instrumentalist duo "The Hammers" have performed for many years at festivals, schools and events throughout Canada, the United States, Costa Rica and the United Kingdom. Ray has performed as a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist with musicians from around the world. He has played in various bands, jazz combos and orchestras, and is well known for his solo work and his original compositions.   Paul, Susan & Ray now combine their many musical talents to provide you with a customized show tailored to the specific needs of your event.  They bring together fiddle, guitar, mandolin, tenor banjo, whistles, concertina, recorders, bodhran, historical percussion, trumpet, keyboards, vocals, plus historical costumes for "period" events when requested. Susan & Paul are also available for bookings as an instrumental traditional Irish Music duo, and provide hands-on instructional workshops for all ages to schools, daycares, seniors' centres and large & small private events.
