Music

 

The band "Hey Mummy, Look!" plays traditional Irish, Scottish and English folk songs, airs, jigs and reels, on fiddle, flute, mandolin, bass, guitar, keyboard and cajon, sung in unconventional harmonies over a variety of rock, funk and Westport grooves, and delivers this with rock and jazz improvisation.

The name "Hey Mummy, Look!" traces its origins to an incident in Roundstone, a small harbour town in Connemara, Ireland, where a young boy was showing his mother a new trick. To the horror of his "Mummy", he proceeded to balance precariously on a dangerously narrow pier wall with a sheer drop to the sea, and called out: "Hey Mummy, Look!"
