In a special fundraising concert for the Inishowen Traditional Music Project, Beoga will make their first visit to Inishowen this Saturday night, July 30, at the Backroom Bar of McGrory’s Culdaff.

The concert is already causing much excitement among the many fans and followers of Beoga.

Beoga (gaelic for ‘lively’) have a huge compilation of rave reviews and accolades from Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary World Music Album 2010, to feature front page on the the St Patricks day edition of the Wall Street Journal.

In 2004, Beoga’s ground-breaking debut album ‘A Lovely Madness’, earned international critical acclaim. The Irish Times wrote ‘Individually talented and collectively inspired, this is a quartet who speak a language called music with a fluency beloved of the best multi-linguists.’

The album earned 9/10 in Ireland’s Hot Press music magazine and was in the Top Trad/Folk Albums of the year listings. Irish Music magazine nominated Beoga for the best traditional newcomer’s award describing the work as ‘madcap genius, master craftsmen. In Beoga, the Irish music world found another prodigy.”
