A warm welcome from Diaspora - Dia daoibh a chairde!

Picture of the bandWe have been described as a long established “feel good” Irish Band, which celebrates the music and traditions of the historic Irish Diaspora and entertains with an eclectic mix of Folk and other influences - listen to our music, read about us, judge for yourselves!


Apologies to all our friends, but as you might have guessed we have had to postpone or cancel the two gigs planned for 17th and 21st March.  We do hope that the coronavirus epidemic will pass and that we can in the not too distant future play again - we are  keen to perform both at gigs and at the Open Mic Sessions;  but for the time being we shan't be hosting an Open Mic Session at Eli's, though you can come along and play there (if the government permits!).

We'll let you know when we're able to get back to normal.


Take care in the meantime, and we'll drink a toast to you all tonight (17th March, St. Patrick's Day)

Greetings to all Diaspora fans.  We hope you had a happy easter despite this crazy lockdown.  We thought you might like to know that the band are (well most of us anyway) having a weekly Zoom session where we swap ideas for our music and occasionally launch into song with mixed results,. I say that because it is very difficult to stay in time because of the delay - try it at home with other musicians on Zoom and you will see.  That doesn't faze a band like Diaspora where some of us (no names, no packdrill) fiind it difficult to keep in time when we're all in the same room.


But we have discovered a way of collaborating online via an app called SoundTrap which enables us to compose and add to one another's compositions.  When we are finally satisfied with our efforts we'll add it to the website.


In the meantime the song made famous by Chris - about dogs in Langport, called "Painting Poo at Midnight" has been given a new lease of life as it is featured in Robert's village Newsletter which he edits.

We'll post the lyrics when Robert has located them...
