Hetric Free Folk - world music. A fusion of different Celtic music traditions: Irish, Scottish, and Manx with Balkan music: Moldavian, Transylvanian, Hungarian!

The group Hétrét is based in South-western Hungary. This corner of the country has always been a melting pot of different cultures and traditions. A meeting point of three countries: Hungary, Austria and Slovenia, the region is home to various nationalities and thus to a unique variety of musical traditions.

Originally a traditional Irish music group, Hétrét expanded their repertoire to combine folk traditions from the local regions: Hungary, the Balkans as well as Transylvania and Moldavia. The music is basically acoustic and one can hear a variety of instruments from the Celtic harp and tin whistles to the South-American charango.
