Goitse is a flourishing, highly talented five piece
band fast making a name for themselves as one of the
most sought after bands amongst connoisseurs of Irish
traditional music. Their fast paced energitic playing
has seen them enjoying a growing fan base through show
stopping performances in Ireland, America, Finland,
Denmark and even Africa.
The distinctive quality of their sound lies in the arrangement
of well-known traditional tunes interspersed with their
own compositions, which make each set entertaining and
unique. The band adds their own distinctive contribution
to their cultural inheritance with ease and style. Even
with hints of continental playing and modern rhythms
there remains the overwhelming presence of Irishness."They
have a big musical imagination and are not afraid to
tear at the edges of the trad envelope".--Irish
Aine Mc Geeney, the fiddle player, is also a well
known singer, with songs in the English and Irish language.
Her sweet, charismatic voice draws audiences into the
music a way very few performers can achieve.
Goitse's debut album which, was released in January
2010, has gained much praise from critics with Hotpress
magazine assuring Irish traditional music lovers "They
play with an easy assurance that should cause those
fretting about the future of Irish trad to rest more
easily at night."

of wonderful music and fast paced fun with Goitse.
