Téada Concert & Workshops

Cois na hAbhna welcomes exciting young trad group Téada to a day of music workshops followed by night time concert on Saturday, 2 February, 2008. Musicians are urged to book early for workshop classes with Téada musicians in order to avoid disappointment as limits will be placed on numbers for each session.

The workshops will take place during the afternoon as follows:

Time Instrument Tutor
3.00 - 4.30 Flute Damien Stenson
3.00 - 4.30 Fiddle Oisín MacDiarmada
4.30 - 6.00 Accordion Paul Finn
4.30 - 6.00 Bodhrán Tristan Rosenstock
4.30 - 6.00 Guitar Seán McElwain

Téada, now firmly established as one of Irish music’s leading exponents on the international world music stage, continues to be driven by a fascination with the timeless, expressive force of traditional tunes inherited from previous generations of musicians. The group line-up is:

*Oisín Mac Diarmada - fiddle/vocals

*Paul Finn - button accordion

*Damien Stenson - flutes, whistles

*Seán Mc Elwain - bouzouki/guitar

*Tristan Rosenstock - bodhrán

Oisín Mac Diarmada and Paul Finn are also members of the highly successful Sligo céilí band, Inisfree who were runners up in the All-Ireland ceilí bands competition at the 2007 Tullamore Fleadh

Since 2001, when the freshly-formed band landed a spot on the innovative Irish television show Flosc, Téada, has evolved to frequent headline performances at major music festivals throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Israel and Australia. A notable highlight was a headlining appearance to a 30,000-audience in Brittany during 2006, a year which also saw the band launch a hugely successful CD/DVD Inné Amárach¹, released by Gael Linn and Compass Records.
