Every now and then you have the pleasure of seeing and hearing something very special. And, that's exactly what we were lucky to experience when the outstanding new, young trio ALFI made their Duncairn/Belfast Debut at one of our Club Fifty nights in 2018.
Alfi are a fresh new trio combining Appalachian old time and traditional Irish music and song to produce a unique sound. Their music features a unique line up of harp, five string banjo, low whistle, uilleann pipes and vocals.
The trio played their first gig together at Arcadian Field in August 2017. Since then, they have performed at many established festivals including Body&Soul, Knockanstockan and The Trip to Birmingham Tradfest. Alfi were crowned winners of the 'Molloy Award' competition at Trip to Birmingham Tradfest. The trio also won the prestigious 'Caoimhín Ó Dochartaigh' battle of the bands competition at Imbolc International Music Festival in February.
The guys have went on to make their debut EP and we are very proud that they have chosen to have the launch here with us. So get the 8th of June pencilled into the diary and join us for yet another great night with these super and talented young musicians. They are on their way to the top and you can always say you caught them in the early days here at The Duncairn.
