An Irish traditional band with a truly worldwide reach, Téada (pronounced “TAY-dah”) has appeared as a frequent headliner at major music festivals throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Africa, Russia, the Middle East and Australia. Their traditional yet refreshingly modern sound entrances wherever the band travels.
One of Irish traditional music’s leading exponents, Téada is driven by a fascination for the timeless, expressive force of music inherited from previous generations of musicians. Winner of ‘Best Young Irish Traditional Act’ at Ireland’s Music Awards, Téada first came together in 2001 to make an appearance on the innovative Irish television series ‘Flosc’. With engaging textural arrangements, Téada—meaning “strings” in the Irish language—revels in the vibrant traditional music of Ireland. Deftly playing up its structural intricacies while preserving the contagious energy inherent in the repertoire, the group strives to capture a sense of the rawness and individuality of the solo artist within a modern group context.
