Forged in the white-hot creative crucible of Limerick University’s Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, the quintet Goitse have graduated with a musical maturity worthy of the greatest. They have 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.
“They have a big musical imagination and aren’t afraid to tear at the edges of the trad envelope.” — Irish Music Magazine (Sean Laffey)
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 breathtaking pace for the music, and the sweet, charismatic voice of Áine Mc Geeney draws audiences into the music in a way very few performers can achieve.
Lace up your dancing shoes and get ready for some wonderful music and fast paced fun with Goitse. Bring your instruments and join us for an Irish Session after the concert!
