extravaganza”, Réalta carry on the Bothy Band tradition of taking tunes

Hailing from the Ulster city of Belfast, this award winning multiinstrumentalist
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 and vocalist 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, voice and bodhrán, making this one of the most
exciting acts on the Irish music scene today.

The release of their second album, Clear Skies, has brought Réalta
widespread critical acclaim, with the Irish Music Magazing summing
things up by writing “Réalta have grown bigger, bolder and braver and
this is one of the best CDs to have come out of Ireland this year”. A
performance by Réalta is joyous, energetic, foot-stomping, unforgettable
and unmissable.
