After 25 years of loyal service, We have said farewell to our long term fiddle player , Julian Pentz who hung up the 5 string electric for the last time with us at the Togmor 30 celebration. We all wish Jules well for the future and hope to see him back as a guest from time to time.

As a result the Togs have been working with a new line up. This will be revelaed for the first time on Saturday 13th April when Togmor play the annual Tograiser event at York House in Stony Stratford.

Tickets are availablee now from www.togfest.org or by calling in to Hollywood Music in Stony Stratford.

This is event is popular and is expected to sell out. Getting tickets early is recommended.

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 CD's 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.

The distinctive sound of Togmor brings together a huge range of talent...

  • Founder member Ian Rowe with main vocals, acoustic and electric guitars
  • The dynamic fiddle sound of Julian Pentz on five string electric violin
  • Pete Jelfs with his rock steady bass lines.
  • Pete Lockwood, Drums and percussion master (with occasional flute!!)
  • Multi-instrumentalist, Euan Forrester on fiddle and Guitars

 

 

****The name Togmor comes from the Gaelic meaning ‘the big lift’. It is the name of the crane that pulled The Mary Rose to the surface of the sea...
