Welcome to the Official Reeltime Homepage. Two eventful years have elapsed since the release of Reeltime's highly sucessful self titled debut album. In that hectic two years Reeltime have generated a large fan base from their excellent live shows. Add to this the excellent reviews their album and live shows have received and one begins to understand why Reeltime are tipped to be the Irish band to take traditional Irish music into the 21st century.
Their new album, scheduled for release on the 9th June '98 on the Green linnet label, further strengthens their position as the hottest band around. This is confirmed by the fact that Reeltime are the only band on the planet with 3 members in the biggest show in the world, Riverdance.
