Ireland's premier young talents, some of the Best Irish Folk Music you'll hear!
Again an exciting LIVE AT STOCKFISCH STUDIO release - this time one of the best
Irish Folk bands visited Northeim for a recording session: "Beoga".
Beoga (Irish word for ‘lively’) are based in County Antrim, in the north of
Ireland. The bedrock of their sound lies firmly within the Irish tradition.
However, they are not afraid to incorporate other genres’ nuances into their
music. From bluesy riffs to Astor Piazzola-style jazz, to a raunchy New Orleans
jamboree vibe, their music always returns to a wonderfully bouncy traditional
sound. The result is traditional, with a huge sense of fun and adventure and it
all works - wonderfully well. The Irish Times states, “Individually talented
and collectively inspired, (Beoga) speak a language called music with a fluency
beloved of the best multi-linguists.”
Beoga is world music, made in Ireland and their musical activities has seen the
supergroup continue to blaze a pioneering trail, rewarding fans with their fresh
creative energy and seducing a diverse array of music lovers. The string of
accolades from the music industry say it best, “Beoga are at the forefront of
the Irish new wave,” Irish Music Magazine concludes. “Simply thrilling,
an auditory high-wire act without a net,” writes Irish Philadelphia.
“Riveting,” says the Wall Street Journal.
The band was drawn together in 2002 after ‘jamming’ in a ferocious session at
the All-Ireland Fleadh. From the beginning Beoga was endowed with massive
musical talent, featuring the twin dueling accordions of Damian McKee and
multi-instrumentalist Seán Óg Graham, pianist Liam Bradley and four times
All-Ireland bodhrán champion Eamon Murray. In 2005, the lineup was complete,
with the addition of Niamh Dunne, one of Ireland’s premier young talents, on
vocals and fiddle.
