As individuals, all are award-winning an accomplished performers. As a group, they have already travelled to Beijing, Shanghai, the U.K, the United States, Switzerland and multiple parts of Europe throughout Germany and Ireland.

 

3 on the Bund released their debut album ‘Frenzy’ in March 2022. Frenzy has been described as ‘a superb debut from a spanking-fresh band with infinite potential!’ (Anita Lock, Irish Music Magazine). In April of 2022, 3 on the Bund headlined the Irish Heartbeat tour of Germany and Switzerland, playing 22 shows across these two countries.

 

2024 is also shaping up to be a big year for 3 on the Bund as not only will they be headlining the Irish Folk Festival tour of Germany in October and November, but the band are currently working on their second album which will be released in 2024

téada
 

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, Israel 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 2014 the band performed to 40,000 people during an extensive 7-week tour of Japan / Taiwan.

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.”
