    Traditional acoustic music with a creative twist.

    An Dro performs traditional acoustic music with a creative twist.  The band's sound is built on a foundation of Celtic tunes.  While that's the starting point, it's not where the journey ends. In an An Dro performance you'll hear traditional Irish melodies, medieval French songs, Breton dance tunes, Scandinavian refrains, Appalachian influences, Latin rhythms, and African grooves, all injected with an improvisational flair that at times resembles jazz.
