A New Years Eve gig like no other, with one of the hottest trad Irish tickets around, TÉADA with special guests
A traditional band with a truly worldwide reach, Téada has appeared as a frequent headliner at major music festivals throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Africa, Russia, The Middle East and Australia. Highlights include a 30,000-capacity stadium concert in Brittany, along with performances at Penang World Music Festival in Malaysia, Edmonton Folk Festival in Canada, Harare International Festival of the Arts in Zimbabwe, and Campeche International Festival in Mexico. In March / April 2014, the band performed to 40,000 people during an extensive 7-week tour of Japan / Taiwan.
Continuing to grow in vision and popularity, Téada recently welcomed a sixth member to the line- up, legendary West Kerry singer and accordionist Séamus Begley, winner of 2013 TG4 Traditional Singer of the Year. The band has recently received a Yeats 2015 funding award for a show production celebrating the Sligo-inspired poetry of W.B. Yeats.
Founded by Sligo fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada, Téada first came together in 2001 to make an appearance on the innovative TG4 television series ‘Flosc’. One of Irish traditional music's leading exponents, Téada is driven by a fascination for the timeless, expressive force of music inherited from previous generations of musicians. Irish Music Magazine describes the band as “at the cutting edge of the next generation of Irish musicians...with a fierce familiarity with the old ways.”
