Three Legg’d Mare are an Aberystwyth band who were brought together by a common interest in the traditional songs and tunes of Wales, England and far beyond, and the social history and folklore that lies behind them. They sing old songs of madness, love, death, adventure and everyday life, intertwined with traditional tunes - and some original compositions. With lively and sensitive interpretations, close vocal harmonies and a multitude of instruments, Three Legg’d Mare chart a course through folk history with a passion and verve that’s earning them a growing following throughout Wales and the borders.

Unusual arrangements, atypical instrumental accompaniments mean that songs that you might believe are common currency prove surprising winners in the rise again stakes. You’ll like this y’hear?
