Russian / Celtic Folk band from St. Petersborg. In 1999 the musician Alexey Belkin organized a folk band Reelroad. Russian songs in Reelroad style are different from authentic way of performing, but from other way originate from it.
The band considers folklore only as an impulse for creating music of their own, such style of music could be called Russian post-folk. Traditional choral Russian singing mixed with different music cultures, different folk instruments (both Celtic and Russian) as fiddle, bagpipes, zhaleika (Russian bombard), gusli (Russian psaltery), hurdy-gurdy, flute, celtic harp, percussion, which are set on the modern rhythm section (bass guitar, full drum set) – that is the business card of Reelroad today.
Reelroad gave many performances in Russia and abroad. Beside concerts musicians of Reelroad conduct workshops of traditional Russian folk dances.
