Irish group coming March 8 to Prizery

Next up at The Prizery on Saturday, March 8, at 7:30 p.m. is the Irish group Caladh Nua.

Throughout history, Ireland has been embraced as a land of song and singers, of music and musicians, men and women who for centuries have been inspired and nurtured by the sounds and swells of her windblown nature. It is from the traditional heart of this musical island that Caladh Nua have been born, raised and released into the world.

Caladh Nua is Gaelic for a new or safe port or anchorage.

To say Caladh Nua’s meeting and formation was a haphazard thing would be disrespectful to the ghosts of  Ireland’s  history  and  music.  Each of Caladh  Nua’s  supremely  talented  and  versatile members carry with them the musical legacy of those who have gone before.

Collectively, the band is a tightly-knit, vibrant and staggeringly talented group of musicians with their origins deeply rooted in the Southern counties of Ireland. Comprised 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 contemporary 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 carries it forward seamlessly into the future.

With a long list of TV and radio appearances to their credit, and two highly acclaimed albums (“Next Stop” and “Happy Days” – another in production), Caladh Nua’s musicians are as accomplished off-stage as they are on.

Caladh Nua was invited to play for the Irish president at her residence in Ireland and has made a series of international tours with stops in Paris, Vienna, Copenhagen, Berlin, Mumbai and Vancouver, casting  a  uniquely  captivating  net  of  Irish  music  and  song  to  an  ever  receptive  and  increasing worldwide audience.
