This Irish five piece band, with members from Armagh and Tyrone, are tearing up the rule book with their bold approach to Irish Traditional music. Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, ‘New Landscapes’, Cúig were awarded “Best New Irish Band 2016” by the Irish American News. Since then they have toured all around Europe and North America including performances at festivals such as Milwaukee Irish Fest, Celtic Connections and Doolin Folk festival.
Their highly anticipated second CD, “The Theory of Chaos”, will feature their high octane creative arrangements along vocals, a recording first for the talented five piece. Join them to celebrate the launch of their new album.
