The multi award-winning quintet Goitse, was forged in the white-hot creative crucible of Limerick University’s Irish World Academy. The guys have recently been crowned Live Ireland’s ‘Trad group of the Year’, Chicago Irish American News’ ‘Group of the Year’, as well as winning the ‘Freiburger International Leiter 2016’ award in Germany. Their third album, ‘Tall Tales and Misadventures’, has received rave reviews.
Laying the foundations for the music are world and all-Ireland bodhrán champion Colm Phelan and Conal O’Kane, one of the finest guitarists of this generation. Áine Mc Geeney’s vocals draw audiences into the music in a way very few performers can achieve. Her energetic style of fiddle playing is complimented hugely by multi award-winning banjo and mandolin virtuoso James Harvey. Bridging the gap between melody and accompaniment is pianist Tadhg Ó Meachair. Lace up your dancing shoes and get ready for a night of wonderful music and fast paced fun with Goitse.
