Sheela-na-Gig, or The Sheelas as they are also known, have played festivals, pubs, wine bars, backyards, benefits, vaudeville shows, coffee houses, and living rooms. According to the band, “We’ve been told we sound like a female version of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, but in the mountains, drinking moonshine and singing of our kinfolk back in Ireland and Scotland.”
As of 2011, the band includes founding members Miss Darla (guitar, vocals, mandolin, mountain dulcimer) and Lee Christie (vocals, percussion, Irish whistles), with occasional fiddle, mandolin,
banjo, bass, and guitar support provided by Paul Castellanos.
A standard at the annual San Diego St. Patrick’s Day festival, they play regularly at Wine Steals in Cardiff.
