Hi all, and welcome to the Catspike website. Catspike has been around since somewhere around 2002. It started as a collaboration between Dan Leighton and Bryan Causton but has taken many forms since. Catspike has included collaborations with such great musicians as Phillip Hughes, Carolyn Sheppard, Frank Corr and Andy Wilson

Dan is known for his strong rich voice and his distinctive interpretation of traditional songs. Please feel free to make contact using the link on the left.


Dan is a member of two ceilidh bands, either of which would be delighted to play for your ceilidh or barn dance. Please click here to visit our "sister" band Swindlers & Gentry
