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.

They play for any ocasion including ceremonies, weddings and pub gigs, however, some performance highlights so far include playing for the Canadian ambassador, the Australian ambassador, and the French ambassador, whom later invited Eitleán to perform in Saint-Mandé outside Paris for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in March 2013. For the last two years they have appeared at the Drogheda Arts Festival, and this year were pleased to perform at a charity gig in Dublin in aid of the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind.
