Caladh Nua brings Gaelic sounds to Prizery Saturday

SoVaNow.com / March 05, 2014
Caladh Nua, five extraordinary talented musicians from three neighboring counties in southern Ireland, will bring their Gaelic sounds to The Prizery in South Boston this Saturday, March 8 at 7:30 p.m.

This quintet of musicians and singers — playing a wide selection of instruments, from banjo to fiddle, guitar to bodhran and tin whistle to button accordion — captures the essential qualities of traditional Irish music and balances them finely with an innovative contemporary flair.

Through a series of international tours and festivals across the globe, which saw the band take the stage in cities such as Paris, Vienna, Copenhagen, Berlin, Mumbai and Vancouver, Caladh Nua has cast a uniquely captivating net of Irish music and song over an ever-widening worldwide audience.

The band has performed for American Public Radio, the BBC, and RTE. Featuring a vast repertoire of haunting songs and evocative Irish tunes, Caladh Nua is a young ensemble on the rise.

Members are:

Eoin O’Meachair (Banjo and Mandolin, Whistles)

Lisa Butler (Lead Vocals and Fiddle)

Paddy Tutty (Fiddle, Bodhran)

Derek Morrissey (Button Accordion)

Colm O’Caoimh (Guitar)

Tickets for the show can be purchased at The Prizery box office by calling 434-572-8339 or go online at http://www.prizery.com. A cash bar will be offered before the show; you can enjoy your cocktail in the theatre. The performance is sponsored by Comfort Systems USA and Jill and Ryan Garrett.
