The name comes from the novel 'The Unicorn' by Manuel Múgica, that takes place on a mythical island Avalon-, situated between Scotland and Ireland, which is inhabited by fairies that guard the tomb of King Arthur.
This mix of different styles: traditional, classical, soul, pop and jazz makes one doubt as to whether it is really Folk music. Avalon has its own essence, its own flavor, which is very different to the rest of Galician bands.
One of the original aspects of Avalon is that it only uses acoustic instruments, which might appear to be a limitation, but the band manages to sound energetic and joyous, encouraging the audience to participate by singing along and dancing.
Despite the fact that the group is still quite young, Avalon has received great acclaim from a varied audience at its live performances.
