Téada is one of the busiest bands on the traditional Irish music scene. They are a group creating a soulful, stately sound with a subtle approach to adornment.

Their debut CD features the uniquely sweet fiddle-playing and vocals of Sligo musician, Oisín Mac Diarmada, the flowing flute and harmonic guitar playing of London-born John Blake, rhythmic bouzouki and banjo-playing from Seán McElwain of Monaghan, and the thoughtfully-crafted tune settings are sensitively enhanced by Tristan Rosenstock on bodhrán.

Téada (tay-da): meaning ’strings’ in the Irish language


"Téada are a new and fresh face in Irish music….this is a band to watch out for." - The Irish Voice
