Réalta 'Clear Skies' CD Launch
"youthful, energetic, stellar music, from one of Ireland's finest bands!" - Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh (Altan)
Described by Irish Music Magazine as a full bodied pipe and whistle extravaganza, Réalta carry on the Bothy Band tradition of taking tunes by the scruff of the neck and firing excitement through them like hot flames!
This multi-instrumentalist group present an enchanting programme of dance music interspersed with the occasional story, air and song. While Conor Lamb and Aaron O'Hagan pursue the melody on uilleann pipes and whistles, guitarist Deirdre Galway explores the harmony and rhythms within the tunes. All-Ireland champions Dermot Mulholland and Dermot Moynagh complete the line-up with dynamic accompaniments on double bass, bouzouki, banjo and bodhrán.
Having toured in Germany and Switzerland alongside Irish music legends Altan, won the prestigious Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections Glasgow, and performed as far afield as India and South Korea, these young musicians have earned a reputation for delighting audiences with the enthusiasm, energy and passion they bring to traditional music.
Described by John McSherry as “delightfully spirited and masterfully executed, Réalta's second album Clear Skies
is due for release on 16th April 2016.
