The Flying Fish Sailors began their journeys in 1988 performing Celtic folk, renaissance music and sea songs, then progressed to original
songs, humor, parody and folk rock. No strangers to diversity, in their early days the band often played in punk clubs, opening for such notables as The Dead Milkmen, Live Skull, and Shoulders.
In recent times the Fish have opened shows for the legendary British folk rockers Steeleye Span, Brother, Tommy Makem, and Altan. The bands’ influences range from The Chieftains to Devo.
Performing acoustic folk music and original comedy, the Flying Fish Sailors bring together elements from diverse musical styles to create a sound uniquely their own. Their shows combine modern and antique instrumentation, and musical styles from many times and cultures: A place where humorous original songs, Renaissance tunes, American and Celtic folk songs converge with classic rock themes, the blues, and even rap and heavy metal influences.
