Full Circle

Full Circle is Canberra's most exciting Celtic-Australian folk band

Formed in 1996, Full Circle won the Band section of the Canberra Irish club "Great Irish Music Competition" in 2000. The band is equally at home playing haunting airs on the Hardanger fiddle or playing full-on 'wall-of-death' Irish reels!

In Nov/Dec 2004 Full Circle made its debut international tour, to Beijing in the People's Republic of China where they played to sell-out audiences. The band played a series of live performances - including at the Great Wall Sheraton - and appeared on Radio Beijing.

Jerry (fiddles, bodhran) and Butch (guitars) are former members of Western Australia's chart busting Mucky duck, while Bruce the bass player is one of the best from Adelaide (Jerry's old stomping ground)

"We all met up again in Canberra, and, having each come full circle, decided to form the band - hence the name..."

The band's extensive experience shows in their polished and vibrant performance style.

Their sessions have been described as nothing less than an 'X-treme Celtic Music workout!' (National Folk Festival, Canberra Australia, 2003)
