The distinguished sound of the band brings a contemporary flair to the heart and core of traditional Irish music and has seen their following swell in their nine years playing together. This vital seven-piece group is comprised of the Lyons brothers, Conor and Barry; sister and brother, Natalie Ní Chasaide and Maitiú Ó Casaide, along with school friends, Adam Whelan, Turlough Chambers and Moss Landman. All command their instruments in creating a unique sound that always remains staunchly true to trad. Adding to the fullness and richness of sound is the introduction of complementary string arrangements and unexpected sounds of the bass and digeridoo by special guests. This is set to be a memorable and rousing night.
