Monty Folk, Montgomery’s community ceilidh band, was set up with support from TASC in early 2014 and has been going from strength to strength ever since. With a varied range of musical styles Monty Folk is well suited to most event occasions from Weddings, banquet, Street Fairs and private functions.
Monty Folk also welcomes new musicians into the band. If you have an interest in any musical instrument and can bring it along to one of our sessions, we would love to see you.

Monty Folk bought a real celtic feel to the night and were enjoyed by everyone. I had other music available, but they played two really long sets, so we got to enjoy them even more!
