Goitse – Live/On-Line – Dún Uladh Cultural Heritage Centre, Ulster Regional Resource Centre for Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann
We kick off our Spring/Summer concerts with Goitse, a popular and multi-award-winning quintet. Goitse was forged in the white-hot creative crucible of Limerick’s Irish World Academy. Named Live Ireland’s “Traditional Group of the Year”, Chicago Irish American News’ “Group of the Year”, as well as winning the prestigious “Freiburger International Leiter” award in Germany, Goitse have become a leader of the new generation of traditional Irish ensembles.
Goitse has released five critically acclaimed recordings and maintains a year round touring schedule that includes performances throughout Ireland and the UK, Germany, France and the United States. Their latests CD, ‘Úr, was named ‘traditional album of the year’ in the ASLR celtic music awards. Their distinctive sound lies in the quality of their own compositions interspersed with traditional tunes from the countryside of Ireland and abroad, which make each performance unique. Laying the foundations for the music are World and All-Ireland Bodhrán champion Colm Phelan and Conal O’Kane, who is fast making a name for himself as one of the finest guitarists of his generation. The gripping rhythm section sets a powerful drive for the music while the sweet, charismatic voice of Áine Mc Geeney draws audiences into a song the way few performers can. Áine was named female musician of of the year in the ASLR awards in 2020 and the composer of the year in 2021.
Together, the quintet Goitse makes what Irish Music Magazine calls “Music that’s brimming with energy and creative zeal.”
The concert will be available to stream on demand from 22nd May 2022 by visiting our Vimeo channel which you can visit by licking the link below. You can also catch up with past concerts to be enjoyed whenever and wherever you want!
