out of hand
Self-described “moody” contemporary Celtic band, Out of Hand are two sets of siblings who discovered a shared passion in the music of their Celtic heritage and their love of playing together. Toe-tapping tunes and lilting melodies, they blend both traditional tunes with original songs and sets.
Performers Sadie (fiddle/vocals/guitar), Caleb (fiddle), Josh (guitar/vocals), Daniel (bass) and Charlie (bodhran/vocals/trombone) are all accomplished young musicians in their own rights. Caleb was elected ‘Face of the Festival’ for the National Celtic Festival 2019 and awarded a scholarship with Feis Ros in Scotland. Sadie was runner-up ‘Youth Folk Artist of the Year’ by the Australian Folk Alliance in 2021 and has over 30 festival appearances as a solo artist. Daniel and Josh both perform alongside their brother Caleb, in the Melbourne Scottish Fiddlers Club and all five members are classically trained.
Although all seasoned performers, together, the group has played festivals including the National Celtic Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival as well as various venues and concerts.
