Caladh Nua

An early St. Patrick’s Day celebration at the WYO with Caladh Nua

Caladha Nua2The band is a tightly-knit, vibrant, and staggeringly talented group of musicians with their origins deeply rooted in the Southern counties of Ireland. Comprising of five versatile musicians and singers playing a wide selection of instruments – from banjo to fiddle, guitar to bodhran and tin whistle to button accordion – the band has captured the essential qualities of traditional Irish music and balanced them finely with an innovative styling.

Through Caladh Nua’s collective influences, both the history and future of Irish music spark to life with a charismatic verve. From slow airs and plaintive vocals hauntingly delivered to modern arrangements played with virtuosity and spell-binding flair, Caladh Nua respectfully delivers the music of their heritage and carry it forward seamlessly into the future.
