Through friendship, sessions and copious amounts of tea, Bunoscionn was created – a musical love-child, mothered by Irish folk music and fathered by dance/reggae/rock/, (paternity tests pending)!

This lively Kildare band have been entertaining crowds for the past 5 years, with notable success nationally and internationally such as Electric Picnic 2013, (with ‘Trad side of the Moon’), Spirit of Folk, Bardentreffen Nuremburg 2013/2014, Paddy’s Day Parade main stage Munich 2013/2015, Bayern Greenfarm Festival 2014, Salzburg Whisky weekend, Stadtgründungsfest Munich,The Secret Village Festival 2013/2014, Vantastival 2014/2015, Irish Charity Ball Vienna 2015 and with a few more tasty gigs to be announced in 2015, Bunoscionn are definitely ones to watch.

All hailing from County Kildare, Ireland, members Conleth Dunne, Mick Cross, Michelle Lynch, Ciaran Connaughton and Glenda McCormack met on the open session scene down amongst the boglands of Kildare and played together in many sessions over pints and cozy fires until formally establishing themselves as a group in 2010.

The band has continued to grow from strength to strength and the fruit of their efforts has come in the form of their brand new self-titled EP. Recently launched in their spiritual home of Rathangan, Bunoscionn are on the move this summer, playing at many of the major Irish music festivals and across in Europe festivals.

This year they’ll be appearing at Sunflower Festival, Vantastival, Spirit of Folk, Knockanstockan, Groove Fest, Prosperous Music festival, Swell Festival Arranmore and many more dates to be confirmed.
