Goitse Takes Trad Group of the Year!

Goitse has established itself as a massively popular band among trad fans the world over. Rightly so. This wonderful quintet released Tall Tales & Misadventures to worldwide recognition in 2015.

Goitse took the prestigious Trad Group of the Year at the Live Ireland Awards, no small feat in a country that has produced many of the greatest traditional groups the world has ever known.

They also recently won Group of the Year with the Chicago Irish American News.

Forged in the white-hot creative crucible of Limerick University’s Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, Goitse have graduated with a musical maturity worthy of the greatest. They have made a name for themselves as one of the most sought after bands amongst connoisseurs of Irish Traditional music cross the globe, with their performances gaining notoriety across four continents. Having won feverish critical plaudits for their Dónal Lunny-produced second album Transformed, the band has skyrocketed to the forefront of the traditional Irish music scene.

*Goitse is an informal Gaelic Irish greeting meaning ‘come here’.
