Other Info
Beoga (gaelic for ‘lively’) features five of the finest young musicians in Ireland. The band was drawn together in 2002 after ‘jamming’ in a ferocious session at the All-Ireland Fleadh. Their unique sound features the twin dueling accordions of Damian McKee and multi-instrumentalist Seán Óg Graham, pianist Liam Bradley, and four time All-Ireland bodhrán champion Eamon Murray.
In 2005, the lineup was complete, with the addition of the band's only woman, Niamh Dunne, one of Ireland’s premier young talents, on vocals and fiddle.
Beoga's sound lies firmly within the Irish tradition. However, they are not afraid to incorporate other genres to intensify their sound. From bluesy riffs, to Astor Piazzola-style jazz, to a raunchy New Orleans jamboree vibe, their music always maintains a wonderful bouncy Irish sound. The result is traditional, with a huge sense of fun and adventure. A very high energy show, with the Tir Conaill Irish dancers. This show will be their 2nd Tucson show; and they have released three CDs since their last show here.
