Beoga
...have become one of the most popular and influential ensembles in modern Irish music. Wall Street Journal dubs them “the most exciting new traditional band to emerge from Ireland this century.” Irish Music Magazine enthuses “In Beoga, the Irish music world found another prodigy… madcap genius, master craftsmen.”

Formed in 2002, Beoga (Irish word for ‘lively’) are based in CountyAntrim, in the north of Ireland. Their unique sound features the twin dueling accordians of Damian McKee and multi-instrumentalist Seán Óg Graham, pianist Liam Bradley and four times All-Ireland bodhrán champion Eamon Murray. The lineup is completed by Niamh Dunne, one of Ireland’s premier young talents, on vocals and fiddle. The bedrock of their sound lies firmly within the Irish tradition.

With three critically acclaimed albums to their credit, the supergroup are blazing a pioneering trail, rewarding fans with their fresh creative energy and award winning performances. The string of accolades from the music industry say it best, “Simply thrilling, an auditory high-wire act without a net,” writes Irish Philadelphia, “This is a major, major band to be reckoned with… super vocals, a terrific staccato beat to the rhythm, with a real sense of style and wit,” says The Chicago American Times, “Beoga are at the forefront of the Irish new wave,” concludes Irish Music Magazine.
Beoga's new 2009 CD, "The Incident" on Compass Records, has been voted #4 overall Best Album release for 2009 by the Irish Echo, proving once again this unique band is a force in today's world of Irish music
