Their music was reels and jigs and toe tapping fun with a few love songs thrown in for good measure.
The quintet — made up of Lisa Butler, who sang lead vocals and played the fiddle; Paddy Tutty, lead fiddle and bodhran; Derek Morrissey, button accordion; and Brian Mooney, banjo and bouzouki; and Caoimihin Ó Fearghah. guitar, flute, and vocals — took the time to give the audience a lesson in Gaelic and they sang along on “Cad e sin den te sin,” which means “Since it’s no one’s concern, no one should care,”or in other words “Mind Your Own Business!”
The show was sponsored by the University/Community Programs (U/CP) department of Missouri State University-West Plains (MSU-WP)
The name of the band in English means New Harbour or New Haven. Their music can be heard on NPR radio on your PBS radio stations. The show is “Golden Circle” and is played on Saturday evenings.
You can listen to samples of their work on their web page caladhnua.com.
Or, see the caladhnuamusic Facebook page.
So if they play in your neighborhood, I would recommend you go and support them and live music.
