The Olllam

. February 29, 2020.

The Olllam is a progressive Celtic influenced electric indie-folk band formed in 2012. The group, a collaborative partnership of core members— Irish musician John McSherry, and Detroit natives Tyler Duncan, Michael Shimmin (known for their popular groups Vulfpeck, My Dear Disco and Ella Riot)— is named after the bards of Irish Kings. Heavily influenced by traditional Celtic folk sounds and melodies, they don’t rely on performing traditional tunes, instead providing an updated modern feel with their own compositions while incorporating different time signatures and instrumentation.
