Born from a promise, from Dan to his daughter, to write a song about Sailing Ships… Dan has evolved his love of traditional Celtic and East Coast music, into a joyous fusion with his band mates’ roots in the Rockabilly, Pop and Country music genres.
The Seabillys are locally-raised “Hillbillys by the Sea”.
The Seabillys CD ‘Mariner’s Tale’ – Available NOW!
“The Seabillys ride the Celtic wind – born of Ireland, blown across the Atlantic to Newfoundland, whistle through the Appalachian Mountains, to BC and beyond. Brian Best (guitar/banjo), Kat Goheen ( fiddle/bodhran drum), Mark Messcu (Stand Up Bass), Dan Beer (guitar). And we all sing, stomp and have a good time.”
Each member regularly plays with other groups or in the Studio, as a session musician, but when they come together, they embrace the salt, and sing with a lilt in their voices and encourage the audience to sing along and join in the cheer.
