'Úr' - new album from Goitse
Forged in the white-hot creative crucible of Limerick University’s Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, Goitse (*Goitse is an informal Gaelic Irish greeting meaning ‘come here’), have graduated with a musical maturity worthy of the greatest. Named Live Ireland’s ‘Trad group of the Year’ in 2015, they have made a name for themselves as one of the most sought after bands amongst connoisseurs of Irish Traditional music across the globe, with their performances gaining notoriety across four continents. Their distinctive sound lies in the quality of their own compositions interspersed with traditional tunes from Ireland and abroad, which make each set entertaining and unique. Their long-awaited fifth album, 'Úr', will be released on July 18th at the BúlaBuzz Bodhrán Summer School at Áras Chrónáin in Dublin on July 18th. Tickets for the launch are available at Áras Chrónáin: araschronain.ie
