Meet Mongoose- the fierce female foursome that are taking Ireland’s alternative folk scene by storm. Their music is an amalgamation of styles, from pop and folk to jazz and traditional. With nods to Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young and Joni Mitchell, Mongoose’s influences range from Simon and Garfunkel to Fleetwood Mac to Beyoncé. All four members are individual songwriters, which allows for an ever-evolving soundscape, from Russian polkas and delicate folk melodies to aching ballads and playful tales of love lost. With a debut album under their belt and festival appearances which include Other Voices, Groove, Knockanstockan, Body & Soul, Longitude and Electric Picnic, this unique band are sure to delight with their quick onstage banter, eclectic range of instruments and beautifully crafted songs.
“Original, smart… the band’s musical accomplishment, gorgeous harmonies and an unquenchable joie de vivre make their performance unique.” -Helena Mulkerns
