Globe-trotting Scottish band Shooglenifty played their long-awaited Brighton debut last night to a delighted audience, with former Swamptrash fiddler Angus Grant leading the band in a very confident and exciting performance.

Their music took us around the world, starting with a western highland jig in the brain, with flamenco and samba rhythms influencing some of the sexier tracks.

Fusing the sound of traditional acoustic instruments such as fiddles and guitars with the lilt of more exotic ones such as the electric banjo and the mandolin, and incorporating some interesting samples, they produced sonic patterns which were very intriguing, and Celtic dance rhythms which were difficult to resist.

Brightonians were jigging tirelessly for the entire set and everyone was agreed, we'd just love to have them back.
