Gaelic musicians, Caladh Nua, play at Prizery Mar. 8

SoVaNow.com / February 27, 2014
Next up on The Prizery stage is the Irish group Caladh Nua (Gaelic for a “new or safe port” or anchorage.) These five versatile musicians and singers will perform Saturday, March 8 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for this one-night show are available at the box-office or by calling 434-572-8339. Or you can purchase online at http://www.prizery.com or e-mail .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Throughout history, Ireland has been embraced as a land of song and singers, of music and musicians; men and women who for centuries have been inspired and nurtured by the sounds and swells of her windblown nature. It is from the traditional heart of this musical island that Caladh Nua have been born, raised and released into the world.

To say Caladh Nua’s meeting and formation was a haphazard thing would be disrespectful to the ghosts of Ireland’s history and music. Each of Caladh Nua’s supremely talented and versatile members carry with them the musical legacy of those who have gone before.

Collectively, the band is a tightly-knit, vibrant, and staggeringly talented group of musicians with their origins deeply rooted in the Southern counties of Ireland.

Comprised of five versatile instrumentalists — from banjo to fiddle, guitar to bodhran and tin whistle to button accordion — the band has captured the essential qualities of traditional Irish music and balanced them finely with an innovative contemporary styling.

Through Caladh Nua’s collective influences, both the history and future of Irish music spark to life with a charismatic verve. From slow airs and plaintive vocals hauntingly delivered to modern arrangements played with virtuosity and spell-binding flair, Caladh Nua respectfully delivers the music of their heritage and carry it forward seamlessly into the future.

With a long list of TV and radio appearances to their credit, and two highly acclaimed albums (Next Stop and Happy Days, with another in production), Caladh Nua’s musicians are as accomplished off-stage as they are on.

Caladh Nua was invited to play for the Irish president at her residence in Ireland and has made a series of international tours with stops in Paris, Vienna, Copenhagen, Berlin, Mumbai and Vancouver, casting a uniquely captivating net of Irish music and song to an ever receptive and increasing worldwide audience. And now, on March 8, they will add South Boston to their list of performances.
