Treebeard

Formed by members of Sheffield progressive rock band Haze; Chris & Paul McMahon & Paul Chisnell the band started out playing acoustic covers of Haze songs but quickly morphed into a popular pub & festival band playing lively folk-tinged covers. They released 2 CDs Heavy Wood in 2002 and Reel Ale in 2010 containing a mix of original traditional and contemporary covers. Current band line up features only original member Chris. Their 3rd CD New Leaves (2017) features almost exclusively self-penned Celtic folk-rock songs & tunes.
