Our Ciara reviewed their Knockanstockan set last year. “Tucan came on and wowed the audience….. The guitars unfurled a wealth of original, sampled and layered music. They took what seemed simple enough harmonies, built up the layers, added a few secret ingredients and rolled out the finished product….. The crowd lapped it up, groovin’ all over the field, drawing customers from the nearby bar and Indian massage tepee tent. Tucan wrapped up the night at this end of the site sending out the love ‘til the early hours”
