Sue (electric violin), Paul (guitar), Jules (drums, djembe) and Chris (bass) are Buckler’s Reel, a Worthing-based band with 10 years experience of bringing their own unique blend of folky/rocky/country covers to pubs, clubs, parties, festivals all over East and West Sussex. NOT an Irish band but with plenty of Celtic influences. The Zeta electric violin is the star with solid backing from harmonised voices and the other instruments. We love to play upbeat and if we play a softer song, it wont belong before a frenetic jig or reel follows. It has been remarked: ‘You never know what you’re going to get next with Buckler’s Reel’ but you know it’s going to be fun.
If the venue cannot accommodate the full on band sound, then Buckler’s Lite, consisting of Sue on violin and Paul on acoustic guitar are just what’s needed, with their own particularly quirky set.
