Crikey Mor is a five piece Irish Trad band of awesomeness!
 
 
Drawn together by a shared love of Irish traditional music, Crikey Mor started out as a group of quality traditional musicians just getting together to play Irish tunes every week at a local Victoria pub. The sessions caught the attention of music lovers who wanted more, so some of the core members decided to band together and bring their exciting, rollicking, and spontaneous sounding music to the stage. In the past two years, the band is gaining a well earned reputation for bringing audiences to their feet with the kitchen party atmosphere provided by their spirited jigs, reels, and songs. Crikey Mor consists of Nancy Grossert (fiddle), Tasia MacKay (flute), Eric Reiswig (uilleann pipes), Andrew Morris (bodhrán) and Jeremy Walsh (guitar) founder of seminal Canadian folk band Scrug McDuhk (now The Duhks).
 
Crikey Mor has since been performing in Victoria and all around Vancouver Island, including the Victoria Highland Games festival, Folkwest, Read Island Beach Fest, and even bringing their foot-stomping music north to the small Malcom Island town of Sointula, BC. Crikey Mor most recently took part in CelticFest Vancouver 2014 in celebration of St. Paddy’s Day, performing four shows over the course of the festival.
