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...
