Fasten your seat belts and prepare for take-off to the sound of Eitleán.
After forming a good friendship during the addictive session vibes that lure trad players into the early wee hours of the morning, a piper, an accordionist and a guitarist began to play regularly together. Following a series of successful festive gigs at the airport, the aptly named group Eitleán was formed. An assortment of musical tastes within the group led to various arrangements of traditional material from Bulgaria, Spain, and Romania, along with a traditional selection of music from Ireland. They strive to cater for every listener’s tastes, hence their song choices range from traditional songs in the Irish and English languages, to ballads and popular music. Eitleán’s album The Devil Set shows the mix of styles favoured by the group.
