*Goitse (Go-wit-cha) is an informal Gaelic Irish greeting
meaning come here.
The popular and multi-award-winning quintet Goitse was
forged in the white-hot creative crucible of Limericks
Irish World Academy. Named Live Irelands Traditional
Group of the Year, Chicago Irish American News
Group of the Year, as well as winning the
prestigious Freiburger International Leiter 2016
award in Germany, Goitse have become a leader of the
new generation of traditional Irish ensembles.
Goitse has released four critically acclaimed recordings
and maintains a year round touring schedule that includes
performances throughout Ireland and the UK, Germany,
France and the United States. Their distinctive sound
lies in the quality of their own compositions interspersed
with traditional tunes from the countryside of Ireland
and abroad, which make each performance unique. Laying
the foundations for the music are World and All-Ireland
Bodhrán champion Colm Phelan and Conal OKane,
who is fast making a name for himself as one of the
finest guitarists of his generation. The gripping rhythm
section sets a powerful drive for the music while the
sweet, charismatic voice of Áine McGeeney draws
audiences into a song the way few performers can.
Together, the quintet Goitse makes what Irish Music
Magazine calls Music thats brimming with
energy and creative zeal.
