IMBOLC Presents: Cúig Kids Concert

 “A fresh, unique and vibrant sound that most bands take years to establish. Talent hanging out of them! A truly brilliant trad band." - Niamh Dunne (Beoga)

Hot on the heels of their amazing gig at IMBOLC International Music Festival 2019, we are delighted to welcome Cúig back to Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin for another kids concert.

Tá an banna cúigir seo ó thuaisceart na hÉireann ag dul a mbealach féin ar fad lena chur chuige maidir lena dtraidisiún ceoil dhúchais. Ó scaoileadh a gcéad albam, ‘New Landscapes’, a fuair ardmholadh ós na léirmheastóirí agus a ghnóthaigh Cúig an gradam ‘Best New Irish Band 2016’ ag Irish American News, bhí an-tóir orthu ar an dá thaobh den Atlantach, ag dul ar chamchuairt sna SA, san Eoraip agus in Éirinn. Sa bhanna tá Miceal Mullen (bainseó, maindilín), Rónán Stewart (fidil, píb uilleann, ceol gutha), Ruairí Stewart (giotáir), Eoin Murphy (bosca cnaipí) agus Cathal Murphy (drumaí, giotáir, ceol gutha). Tá an chuma ar an scéal go dtógfaidh Cúig ar an rath seo le scaoileadh dara halbam s’acu, ‘The Theory of Chaos’, a bhfuil ag súil go mór leis.

This Irish five-piece band from the North of Ireland are tearing up the rule book with their bold approach to their native musical tradition. Since the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, ‘New Landscapes’, for which Cúig were awarded ‘Best New Irish Band 2016’ by the Irish American News, they have taken both sides of the Atlantic by storm having toured extensively in the US, Europe and Ireland. Comprising of Miceal Mullen (banjo, mandolin), Rónán Stewart (fiddle, uilleann pipes, vocals), Ruairí Stewart (guitars), Eoin Murphy (button accordion) and Cathal Murphy (drums, guitars, vocals), Cúig look set to continue this success with the release of their highly anticipated sophomore album, ‘The Theory of Chaos’.
