Comprising guitar, harp, viola and violin with four-part singing in Manx Gaelic, Staa play both traditional and self composed music.


‘Staa’, according to Kelly’s 1780 Manx Grammar, means ‘a band of three men making a hedge together – two of them cutting the sod, and one lifting.’ It also translates, more easily, as ‘a work party’.

Line-up
Hillary Gale – viola and vocals
Grainne Joughin – violin and vocals
Greg Joughin – guitar and vocals and percussion
Caly Roberts – harp and vocals
