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.
