Acoustic Northern European folk-rock with guts and melodies, not afraid of colouring a bit outside of the lines. That’s what you might say to describe Ceilí Moss in a few words. Perhaps it is Genevieve Williams from Widdershins who said it best: "They are not as punk as The Pogues, but they have a bit of that attitude and it gives them an edge many folk groups lack". Other recurring comparisons are Ambrozijn, Tri Yann, Jaune Toujours, Les Ogres de Barback, The Waterboys, the old Clannad...

If, like many, we started with (and still enjoy playing) the "Spanish drunken Danny rover of the County Down in the jar", 14 years of touring and recording have helped us create our own distinctive sound: Celtic, Flanders, Scandinavia, klezmer, medieval music, French chanson, Eastern Europe, ska, Balkanbeat, kleinkunst, singer-songwriter, blues, original material or (mistreated) traditionals, we take whatever we fancy, put it in our cauldron and whoever says it's not bloody "orthodox" or poxy "as it should be" gets a smack bottom...

Ceilí, I guess most of you know, is an Irish word for a party with traditional dance music. Moss was the nickname of Alain Mossiat, boss of the pub "L'Eblouissant", in Namur, where we first learned to deal with stage fright, back in the early 90s.

Our fourth album "La vie sent quoi?" is available since october 2010 and we'll be intensively touring the Benelux and Northern France in 2011.

The next market day
An Irish traditional in which, surprisingly enough, no one dies a horrible death starving in the cold. How bizarre...

La vie sans toi
A breakup song, not the "the sun ain't gonna shine anymooooooore", mind you.

Laurent Leemans, singer and guitarist of the Belgian acoustic folk-rock band CEILÍ MOSS ( http://www.ceilimoss.be ), is proud to present his first solo-all by myself-autistic effort: "Laurent Leemans & the Imaginary Friends Ensemble" offers 11 pieces of acoustic, minimalist and not (too) boring singer-songwritership. Discover more on http://www.myspace.com/laurentleemans
Note that in the meantime, Ceilí Moss is working on its fourth album, which should be released in the spring of 2010.
