The WeeBag Band consist of 5 musicians Paul Bassom, Rory McGough,Steve Owen, Alan Colinson & Julian Anderson. From time to time they have the odd (sometimes very odd) musician join them.

Paul & Rory met in back in 1993 and as both of them have a keen interest in music they soon hit it off. Problem was that at that time Rory was based in Denbigh while Paul was based in London. In 1998 Paul moved up to Denbigh allowing them more time to develop their musical style. Since 2001 they have been playing in pubs & clubs in and around North Wales. Wanting to create a more dynamic sound Mark & Alan joined in 2003.

With the introduction of Jules the Fiddle in 2007, Steve replacing Mark on the bass in 2011 and Jim the Flute & Terry the Whistle joining us from time to time, the band were often seen out & about as a 5 & 6 piece and capable of delivering the dynamic and energetic sound that is unique to Irish Music.

Oh.! and the name.......? Well lets just say we were under the influence of something a tad iffy when we came up with that one and were stuck with it now...!!!
