The 2017-2018 Concert Series presents...

Téada

Sunday, March 18, 2018
Concert 7:30 pm
at Appalachian Brewing Company

With engaging textural arrangements, Téada (meaning "strings" in the Irish language) revels in the vibrant traditional music of Ireland. Deftly playing up the structural intricacy of reels, jigs, and hornpipes, the band blends the raw individuality of solo artists with the contagious energy of a modern ensemble.

With engaging textural arrangements, Téada (meaning "strings" in the Irish language) revels in the vibrant traditional music of Ireland. Deftly playing up the structural intricacy of reels, jigs, and hornpipes, the band blends the raw individuality of solo artists with the contagious energy of a modern ensemble.

"One of the most deeply satisfying traditional works to come our way in some time. Téada are among the youngest of the new crop of Irish musicians but they display a fierce familiarity with the old ways. They represent the strings that bind, a group of young players bent on producing a deeply authentic sound while moving towards the cutting edge of the next generation of traditional practitioners."Irish Music Magazine, 2004

Since they last came to the SFMS stage in 2011, Téada have continued to grow in stature and vision. They've been a frequent headliner at major music festivals and large venues around the world. The band received a Yeats 2015 WDC Funding Award for a show production celebrating the Sligo-inspired poetry of W.B.Yeats.

The latest addition to Téada's lineup is legendary West Kerry singer and accordionist Séamus Begley, winner of 2013 TG4 Traditional Singer of the Year. The band also features Oisín Mac Diarmada on fiddle, Damien Stenson on flute, Seén Gavin on uilleann pipes, Tristan Rosenstock on bodhrán, and dancer Samantha Harvey on piano.
