About the Band

St 6 v2 1

Sportive Tricks - Celtic Music with a Kick

A Southern California folk band with a heavy Irish influence, Sportive Tricks gives traditional music a rousing twist. They also play many original tunes, both serious and silly. Formed in 2006, Tricks’ music leans towards bands like Great Big Sea and Gaelic Storm with influences ranging from The Chieftains to Flogging Molly. Inspired by the rich traditions of Irish, Scottish, and English folk, Cape Breton music, and sea shanties, Sportive Tricks combines traditional instruments with new arrangements, high energy, and a dash of humor for a foot-tapping, hand-clapping good time.

Sportive Tricks plays year-round at pubs, festivals, and concerts throughout California. 

Back to the Woodshed

We're taking the month of October to polish new pieces, although we are doing a private event.  At our next public outings we hope to premiere fresh tunes.

A Couple of Hints:
We're excited yet confused.
   Will Amy be Bravely singing a new song or
   Will Sue be digging Deeper to offer something special?

In either case, there are decidedly different instruments showing up.

See you all soon.
