Perfect Friction is a group of young musicians who came together through playing at Wicklow Trad sessions in Wicklow Town. The band features seven Trad musicians and a world-class vocalist, Rebecca Winckworth, who has toured extensively with Anúna among other groups.
The band’s music ranges from high-energy Trad sets with a full range of instruments (fiddle, flute, uilleann pipes, concertina, accordion, whistle, bodhran, guitar, piano), to pop and rock songs tastefully arranged with a Trad theme. The musicians, all from Wicklow, Dublin and Wexford, include four All-Ireland champions and collectively they deliver a sound that will have your foot tapping and will leave you wondering what the magic ingredient is. www.perfectfriction.ie
