Traditional Irish Music
Sligo band Moxie have just launched a Fundit Campaign to raise the finance to record their first album. They are without doubt one of the best new up and coming bands around. Since we first discovered their music some time back we have become big fans of their music. We also reviewed their EP last year and wrote that "the band includes Cillian Doheny Tenor Banjo / Nylon & Steel String Guitar / Mandola, Jos Kelly Button Accordian / Keyboard, Darren Roche Button Accordian / Nylon String Guitar, Ted Kelly Tenor Banjo / Tenor Guitar / Mandolin and Paddy Hazelton Percussion. They are the fresh faced, bright young things of traditional Irish music today. Innovative and talented in their approach they create engaging music, turning standard tunes into something new. Nothing earth shattering, just fresh and thought provoking.
On their Fundit page they describe their music as having "a solid traditional backbone. Jazz, rock, bluegrass and world music rhythms and harmonies are creatively structured around this base treating the listener to layers of rich and intricate sounds as the band deliver a punchy programme of both their own compositions and old tunes with a new emerald vibe."
