 Talented musician, coming from Stratford upon Avon

Peter Shortall

Peter Shortall is, together with Dara Vallely, the founder member of the Armagh Rhymers.

Ballad singer, mimer and comedian, bedecked in bright motley costumes and masks of flax, willow and straw. 

Peter acts out the old legends, customs and habits handed down from the old days.

“The masked tradition of 'mumming' dates back 2,500 years in Ulster. We are breaking down the barriers of fear.”
