STEPHEN DOHERTY - flute, whistle, accordion, bodhran and cajon
About :
The Washington post once describe them as "Gráda is to Irish music what Arcade Fire is to indie - informal, prodigious and full of spirit."
Sums it up quite good really, this five piece Irish folk group will be right here in Limerick at the start of next month for a show in dolans. The 7th of May sees the band bring their 5 album long discography to the upstairs part of the venue. Their new 12 track release "Natural Angle" is a great listen and is sure to be fantastic live. Tickets for the gig are available here http://www.dolanspub.com/event.php
