tap/sal/teerie [′tɑpsəl′tiri]

  1. adv. Topsy-turvy (Scottish Gaelic, Ayr. 1783 Burns Green Grow the Rashes)

  2. n. Melbourne-based prog folk quartet

A melting-pot of celtic flute, country music, blues guitar, with the energy and free spirit of a bushdance, and a 90’s attitude, stirred by four consummate musicians. Groove-based original music paying homage to sounds, experiences, people, and places.

Sounds like: if Michael McGoldrick, Chris Norman, and Liz Carroll were playing an Ed Reavy tune accompanied by Jimi Hendrix, James Jamerson, and Brian Blade.

Origin: Wurundjeri and Wurundjeri-Willum country.
