Bands

Here’s a short listing of bandprojects I was involved in. After relocating to Amsterdam I quit playing in Bands (for now at least) but enjoy playing session and casual gig here and there.

If you are interested in booking me and some friends to play irish music at your wedding, party, or whatever joyful occasion you might have,
write me a mail: carstensen.music@gmail.com

The Chancers
A traditional irish/scottish folkband based in Kiel.
My contribution: button box and (rarely) low whistle.

Ballynacally
! I suggest turning down your headphones before clicking the link !

A (more or less) traditional irish folk band that was based in north frisia.
My contribution: button box.

Hans Dans
An acoustic dance band rocking traditional and contemporary music from the german-danish border regions.
My contribution: fiddle.

Kalüün
A traditional frisian(!) folkband based on Föhr. I was fortunate enough to play some fiddle, box and whistle parts as a guest musician on their very recently released debute CD “Spöören”. Check out their new trailer

The CD was awarded with the “Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik” (german record critics award)
