Ten Strings And A Goatskin is a talented traditional music group from Canada’s Prince Edward Island. This youthful award-winning trio of fiddler and singer Rowen Gallant, guitarist Jesse Periard and percussionist Caleb Gallant have ranked high on international traditional music charts and garnered many great reviews. They present an accomplished potpourri of Irish, French, Acadian, and original music, well-seasoned with world beat grooves. They’ve been eloquently described as, “A seamless, polished, barrel-drum-tight, rhythmically innovative and wildly entertaining traditional music powerhouse.” That quote serves as an excellent appetizer for those of you yet to hear them. Yet it still fails to do them complete justice. Since words can’t really explain how good they sound, you’ll have to listen for yourself.

GOTAK began in 2005 with a handful of orchestra students with a common interest in exploring string music outside of the classical realm. GOTAK has grown significantly since then and always succeeds in exciting the audience with their love of fiddling and sounds of Blue Grass, Irish and Celtic Folk Music, Jazz and Rock. They are also the proud hosts of Grand Haven’s annual Irish Music Festival.
