Skeeal la Scotsman:

This contemporary folk group is unusual on two counts: they sing in the Manx language (also Gaelic and English) and the instrumental melodic lead is taken by woodwind, with nary a fiddle in sight.
One traditional old-style wooden flute and a modern metal Boehm system stack up fine harmony lines.

Three singers share the vocal lead and one guitar supplies a rhythmic bed.
While the dance tunes sound quite Irish, they're sourced both locally and from across the sea gaps.
