The Carty Sisters are the multi talented three sisters, Saoirse on lead vocals and guitar, Naoise on fiddle, concertina and vocals and Ciara Carty on percussion, tin whistle and flute! We are delighted to have them as they are a youthful, energetic 3 piece Traditional & Folk music group. The girls are coming all the way from County Wexford to join us. The three sisters are well named. This highly talented threesome were selected by The Three Sisters 2020 Bid as the faces of the initiative – how appropriate! (Might come in handy for a table quiz question one night).
They’ve just released their new EP called Cogar. Though the musical roots of the three-piece group are based in the traditional genre they say that “their passion for musical expression sees them explore many avenues and as a result their sound crosses many boundaries.” The resultant EP therefore includes a mixture of traditional instrumental tracks and more contemporary material. They describe it as “part trad, part folk and part Americana.”
You are in for a real treat with these ladies. You can check out the full schedule here.
