A dream line-up: Martin Hayes, Dennis Cahill, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, Iarla O Lionaird & Thomas Bartlett

My sense of the word “band” in music isn’t right for a group of friends that play together from time to time, especially when those friends are such significant “figures” in their own right. So I don’t think this is a band in that sense because each member is so well known for other work they do and, I would guess, relishes so much their musical individuality they would never be contained or restrained by such a notion.

But they are using the word themselves and that’s exciting in and of itself – they obviously believe the grouping has some future, and what a dream line-up: Martin Hayes, Dennis Cahill, Caoimhin O Raghaillagh, Iarla O Lionaird & Thomas Bartlett! So let’s hope the grouping gets plenty of airing both live and digitally very soon.

They recently spent a few days at Grouse Lodge writing & recording and Thomas Bartlett got a few photographs to record this historic coming together >>>>.

They’re trying to come up with a name too >>
