"Electrifying Irish music"

 "The Barleyshakes are a guaranteed good time, and never disappoint. Their energetic presence on stage and stories behind the songs are such a fun and genuine insight into Irish culture."

"That the Barleyshakes manage to be at the forefront of traditional Irish music in Australia while breathing it new life is remarkable. Intense energy, beautiful harmony, and irresistible dance rhythms are what make them tick."
