Alfi are a fresh new trio combining Appalachian old time and traditional Irish music and song to produce a unique sound. Their music features a unusual line up of harp, five string banjo, low whistle, uilleann pipes and vocals.
The trio played their first gig together at Arcadian Field in August 2017. Since then, they have performed at many established festivals including Body&Soul, Knockanstockan and The Trip to Birmingham Tradfest. Alfi were crowned winners of the ‘Molloy Award’ competition at Trip to Birmingham Tradfest. The trio also won the prestigious ‘Caoimhín Ó Dochartaigh’ battle of the bands competition at Imbolc International Music Festival in February.
Alfi have spent the last year performing throughout Ireland and abroad. The trio will be releasing their debut EP ‘Wolves in the Woods’ in Whelan’s on the 26th of May. This will be followed by a summer tour around Ireland and England.
