events, including a television performance in Medieval costumes at last year's 'Festa das Vindimas' pro- gramme filmed at the Quinta dos Vales wine estate in Estombar. But for Pedro, personal highlights include performing on the main stage at the Fatacil and, some- what contrastingly, an intimate outdoor concert at the Silves Museum, where four musicians and Ilze on vo- cals performed to an audience of just 30 people. With instruments like the accordion, the guitar and the cajón (a South-American percussion instrument), among others interpreting Pedro's songs, the musician notes that the Portuguese guitar is extremely popular with their international audience. “It's a genuine Por- tuguese instrument and for the foreign listener, that's


very special,” believes Pedro, who also teaches the clas- sic Portuguese guitar at the School of Rock in Lagoa. So how does this typically Portuguese instrument fit in with a Celtic-inspired playlist? Pedro explains: “Al- though our music is Celtic and sung in English, you can tell that it was born here. It has Portuguese and most importantly Algarvean roots. It's not planned, it happens naturally. It's in our blood.”


Having launched two albums (in 2006 and 2008), the band's songs are now available to buy on iTunes and from online stores, including the newest album Spirit of the Forest. Pedro also has his own Youtube channel, which showcases the work of the band and the musi- cian's many other projects.
