The new promotional video for "Four Winds"

If this new band can deliver on their individual brilliance in a group form then we are in for a treat.  This is their promo video released today and here is what they have to say about themselves. "Four Winds is an Irish traditional music band that got together in 2013. The idea of forming a band had been in all four members mind for a while. Caroline Keane and Tom Delany had previously toured and recorded their EP "Framework" together while Daoiri Farrell and Robbie Walsh had been performing and travelling internationally with various bands such as Blasta and The Daoiri Farrell Band. While in the meantime Caroline and Daoiri also played together in Solid Clarity. It was only a matter of time until the four of them joined forces to create the unique sound that is Four Winds.

The band consists of:
Daoiri Farrell (Vocals and Bouzouki.)
Daoiri's versatile repertoire consists of Irish traditional songs, humour ballads, songs of exile, popular contemporary songs and much more, with a particular grá for uncovering much less well known songs. Caroline Keane (Concertina). From a young age, Caroline was exposed to the richness of West Limerick and Sliabh Luachra traditional music, an influence which has become the cornerstone of her uniquely vibrant, passionate and emotive style of concertina playing.

Robbie Walsh (bodhrán, percussion and backing vocals)
Robbie is a bodhran player hailing from Dublin. He won the all Ireland bodhran title in 2008 were he then went on to become a Full time musician. The art of the drum was passed on by his uncle. His powerful modern style is one of the foundations of the sound of the band.

Tom Delany(Uilleann pipes and whistles)
With an Irish father and French mother, Tom gained his musicality through osmosis, born and raised in a rich environment of Irish music. Inspired by the traveling style of piping, his rhythmic playing is powerful and daring.

Deeply rooted in the tradition they produce an exciting landscape of tunes and lyrics that reflects their love for Irish traditional music without ignoring modernity and creativity.Their influences extend from Begley and Cooney, the Bothy Band Planxty, Brady and Irvine,Moving Hearts to Pink Floyd or Elvis.

They are currently working on a recording which should be out by this summer along with a long summer of performances around Ireland and Europe, including Brittany, France, and The U.K.
