SOLD OUT

Irish Music with a Twist

Goitse, forged in the white-hot creative crucible of Limerick University’s Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, the quintet have graduated with a musical maturity worthy of the greatest. They hade made a name for themselves as one of the most sought after bands amongst connoisseurs of Irish Traditional music, having won feverish critical plaudits for their Dónal Lunny-produced second album Transformed.

Their distinctive sound lies in the quality of their own compositions interspersed with well-known traditional tunes, which make each set entertaining and unique. The gripping rhythm section sets a breaktaking pace for the music while through the sweet, charismatic voice of Áine Mc Geeney draw audiences into the music in a way very few performers can achieve.

Lace up your dancing shoes and get ready for a night of wonderful music and fast paced fun with Goitse.

*Goitse is an informal Gaelic Irish greeting meaning ‘come here’.

Supported by Culture Ireland as part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme.
