Name of Band: The Life O’Reilly
Ben Fortnum (and occasional guests!)
We would describe our music as… Scots/Irish Traditional, Ceilidh….with a bit of everything else thrown in, from Blues to Country, to the Stones!
Background information: Been hanging around since the late 90’s. Ben, our bass player, was brought in to lower the average age of the band members! But he is also a fantastic bass player. Have played extensively throughout the UK, and a lot of Europe too, anything from pubs to clubs and festival stages. A few TV credits, radio plays and hopefully about to release a 3rd album.
One interesting fact about us: We were a finalist Dumfries & Galloway Life’s Performing Artist of the Year award category. Worked on the film ‘The Vanishing’ starring Gerrard Bulter and Peter Mullan, and recorded the song ‘Bring Me Down’ for the soundtrack album.
