This stunning evening features riveting music, heartfelt songs, dynamic dance, and captivating stories centered around the beautiful traditions of Ireland.
A traditional band with a truly worldwide reach, Téada has appeared as a frequent headliner at major music festivals throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Africa, Russia, the Middle East, and Australia. Highlights include a 30,000-capacity stadium concert in Brittany, along with performances at the Penang World Music Festival in Malaysia, the Edmonton Folk Festival in Canada, the Harare International Festival of the Arts in Zimbabwe, and the Rainforest World Music Festival in Borneo. In 2014, the band performed to 40,000 people during an extensive 7-week tour of Japan/Taiwan and continues to have a strong touring presence in the United States, where Téada has toured actively since 2001.
May 2022 brought the release of the band’s new album on the Gael Linn label, featuring an exciting vocal collaboration with Hollywood actor & singer John C. Reilly in addition to the band’s customary re-energizing of rare tunes from the tradition. Legendary Kerry singer and accordionist – Séamus Begley – Téada’s vocalist since 2012, sadly passed away in January 2023, a great loss to Téada and the entire musical community. Notable festival appearances in 2023 include the Savannah Music Festival, Montana Folk Festival, Festival Interceltique de Lorient (Brittany), and Irish Festival of Oulu (Finland).
