Tapsalteerie Band

Bringing together three artists from diverse, yet complimentary backgrounds, Tapsalteerie is a Melbourne-based Celtic music group, consisting of flute, guitar/keyboards, and double bass. The group performs tunes mostly written by Meredith Beardmore, the flutist. These tunes explore interesting musical territory – including unusual time-signatures and colourful harmonies – infused with the rhythmic drive and tone colours of traditional Irish and Scottish music.
Meredith is the founder of and flutist with Muses Delight, a Melbourne-based early music ensemble. Timothy also plays the saxophone and writes music – he is a published composer and plays avant-garde improvised music and jazz. Isaac regularly performs with the best of Melbourne’s jazz and folk musicians.
The group’s name, Tapsalteerie, (literally ‘topsy-turvy’) is in homage to the work of Rabbie Burns.
