Flat Out from Ballina, Co. Mayo - Mixing Trad with Pop ( 99 Red Balloons )

We cover all bases here on Tradconnect and are always looking for the quirky, off beat, off the wall and contemporary twists that our young trad musicians are adding to our traditional music.  We never envisaged 99 Red Balloons by Nena showing up on a trad site but here it is.  And we very much like it.  

It's by a young trad band from Ballina, Co. Mayo called Flat Out.  "They play an eclectic mix of Traditional Irish music fused with a more modern sound. When it comes to their songs they cover various genres and artists. Some of the artists they cover include Florence and the Machine, Mary Black, Mumford and Sons, Sean Keane, Jack Johnson, Christy Moore, The Corrs, Foster the People, MGMT, Sinead O'Connor and many more.  If the Pogues could mix trad and punk, why not some trad and pop.  We will be following their progress.
