Meet the Band:

Danny HarmerNina ReevesBrendan ReevesPhil Wood

Danny Harmer - accordion

Danny (aka human compass) is the midfield "flair" section and the melody brains in the band. He has written many, many tunes from jigs to reels to hornpipes.  Many of which appear on their latest CD.

Nina Reeves - fiddle

Nina plays in the attacking position of the Rufus team. A classically trained musician who effortlessly bridges the back line and middle section.

Brendan Reeves - guitars

Brendan plays mainly midfield between Danny and Phil and gives Rufus its distinctive driving sound.

Phil Wood - drums

Phil, the very back line of Rufus. Possibly the loudest drummer on the folk scene! Phil is also classically trained and is a founder member of Rufus Return.
