Irish folk music and the North American traditions of old-time, Bluegrass and French Canadian are strongly represented in their music.
The Yläsiirtola Ramblers are a folk band with a long history, hailing from the Yläsiirtola district of Oulu. Traditional Irish music is strongly present in the band’s repertoire and they prefer not to limit their musical journey to only one country, genre or tradition. For the Yläsiirtola Ramblers, the most essential part of music is a great atmosphere and a lively spirit.
