Togmor combine originality and energy in a fast moving electric set that has a wide appeal to both fans of Celtic roots music and fans of contemporary folk rock. Their music is carefully crafted to combine a vibrant mix of powerful modern rhythms with a traditional Celtic feel. Togmor interplay blazing bursts of jigs and reels with evocative acoustic songs to create a dynamic web of sounds.
With over 30 years and several CDs behind them, Togmor have been playing their own energetic brand of Celtic rock/folk music at music venues, arts centres and festivals around the UK and Europe including their own hosted Togfest festival in Milton Keynes. They have shared the stage with a wide range of musicians including Lindisfarne, Rock, Salt & Nails, Shoogleniffty, The Oyster Band, Fairport Convention, Ron Kavanagh, Whippersnapper, Kate Rusby and the late Labi Siffre to name but a few.
