What We Do

3 Sheets presents original and traditional Celtic and nautical music.  Our performances are always filled with energy, education and humor.   We perform within five formats.  These formats can be easily adjusted to meet a producer's needs. 


Full shows – two forty-five minute sets supported by a full sound system.  The shows generally present a variety of fourteen to sixteen songs and instrumental pieces.  

House Concerts - two forty-five minute sets generally with a small sound system.  Lots of interaction with the audience.  Typically shows present a variety of fourteen to sixteen songs and instrumental pieces.  

Festivals – 50 minute sets repeated during the course as required by the organizer.  

Workshops – From hour long classes to week long class, 3 Sheets can teach repertoire, instrumental technique, performance technique, composition, song writing, music theory.

Benefit Concerts – 3 Sheets does a limited number of benefit concerts.  Yes, benefit concerts provide good exposure for our music.  But, you can die from too much exposure.

A 3 Sheets concert will almost always include these instruments:  guitar, hammer dulcimer, cittern, bodhran, whistle, and 5-string banjo.   Additional instruments to fit the occasion may include: tenor banjo, bouzouki, concertina, and hammer mbira.
