Take a musician who is passionate about our heritage, dresses as a pirate, supports local charities and is a Portlander now living in Weymouth, and you’ve got Taloch Jameson, enigmatic front man of the internationally renowned Celtic Rock outfit The Dolmen.
The musicians who make up the band are Tony Jameson (Singer-Songwriter, lead vocals and acoustic guitar), Kayleigh Marchant (bass guitar, vocals), Josh Elliott (electric guitar, bouzouki, mandolin and vocals) Chris Jones (drums) Matt Tarling (Fiddle)
This piratical band of rebel-rousers have produced no less than 16 very individual albums.
They tour Europe each Spring and Summer where they are a rising force on the big festivals out there, bringing the raw power and boundless energy of their live show to an ever-growing army of fans.
The good news is that you’ll often find them playing in a Weymouth or Portland venue when not touring.
