TradFest Presents: BEOGA
Beoga "Madcap genius, master craftsmen"-Irish MusicThe bedrock of Beoga's music lies firmly within the Irish tradition, but they are not afraid to incorporate other genres' nuances into their music. This five-piece ensemble comes from County Antrim in Northern Ireland. Moving from bluesy riffs to tango-inflected jazz, to a raunchy New Orleans jamboree vibe, their music always returns to a wonderfully bouncy traditional sound. They themselves call their music "trad on anabolic steroids." With a repertoire of fresh self-penned tunes and inventive arrangements, Beoga's album "A Lovely Madness" earned a 9/10 rating from Ireland's Hot Press magazine, and all their albums have landed on numerous ten-best lists in both Ireland and North America. Says the Irish Echo: "It is Beoga who may be Ireland's closest answer to The Band in combined virtuosity, risk-taking, and omnivorous musical palate."We are teaming up with our friends next door at Conor O'Neill's to offer a special dinner package for tonight's show.
