Biography

Composed of four accomplished Irish musicians, Boxing Banjo is one of the most exciting new bands on the Irish traditional music scene. Together they conjure up a unique blend of traditional Irish music and song, old time music and bluegrass. Combining a myriad of instruments including button accordion, banjo, guitar, mandolin and fiddle, their high octane performances encapsulate their raw passion for their music. Connla has quickly made an impact on the folk/traditional scene. Their sensitive and innovative arrangements of traditional and modern folk songs and tunes have allowed them to create a unique and instantly recognisable sound. It is this rare band that musically appeals to the experienced trad purist, as well as the musically uninitiated fan. Hailing from the Ulster city of Belfast, Réalta is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist band that presents an enchanting programme of traditional Irish dance music interspersed with the occasional tune and song. A Réalta performance is joyful, energetic, thrilling, unforgettable and unmissable.
