Tradfest: 3 on the Bund

Cyprus Avenue

Sat 1 Feb 2020 (event has already taken place)
Doors: 8:00 pm

"3 on the Bund" are an exciting new band that came together in March of 2019 after meeting in the University of Limerick's prestigious Irish World Academy. Their complex, layered arrangements consist of both traditional and newly-composed tunes which are played with an energy and passion that is completely authentic. The band's four members are from very varied musical backgrounds which contributes to their diverse sound; Aisling Lyons who plays harp and concertina is from County Clare, Rebecca McCarthy Kent on fiddle is from County Waterford, Seán Kelliher on guitar and banjo is from County Kerry and finally, Simon Pfisterer who is originally from Bavaria, Germany is the Uilleann piper of the group. As individuals, all are award-winning and accomplished performers. As a group, they have already travelled to Shanghai, Beijing and the United States. Most recently, they left audiences awe-struck after performing at the Trip to Birmingham TradFest in November of 2019. They are looking forward to performing at this year's UCC TradFest.
