Mollag Band

Mollag Band launch new CD

The band sing in both Manx and English, and launched their latest album, 'Afloat', during the final day of Yn Chruinnaght in Peel.

The launch of The Mollag Band's new CD, Afloat, took place on the final day of Yn Chruinnaght as part of events being held on the forecourt of the House of Manannan in Peel. A large crowd gathered to hear the popular local band, followed by a selection of other Celtic musicians and dancers.

Bathed in warm, summer sunshine the seven-strong Mollag Band presented a selection of songs and tunes based on their extensive repertoire, including material from their new CD.

Many of their fans took advantage of the free session, which included an open invitation to join members of the band in celebration of the launch of their latest CD, with Pimms and home-made refreshments.
