Ireland is everywhere and anytime, Scotland too. According to this motto, the band O'Malley... out in the cold has been playing since 1984 through concert halls, festivals, pubs and all kinds of festivities and venues that can be spontaneously transformed into an Irish or Scottish pub.

With multi-instrumentalist Oswald Schimek (guitar, Irish bouzuki, banjo, tin whistle, harp, bodhrán, vocals), singer Wende Weigand (vocals, guitar) and fiddler Matthias Merzbacher (fiddle, vocals, chicken shake), the repertoire moves between traditional and modern Celtic folk in the O'Malley style.

This band's own style does not stop at country, rock and blues influences, if necessary. And sometimes even something Franconian creeps in!
