The Young Irelanders- The Young Irelanders comprises eight sensational performers who have Irish traditional music, song & dance running through their veins.

The artists have also toured as lead performers with Riverdance and Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance, been soloists on PBS Special’s, shared the stage with Bono, and have recorded with Ronnie Wood (Rolling Stones) and been chosen by Sting to perform for his exclusive private parties.

Skipper's Alley- Skipper’s Alley are a 6-piece ensemble whose dynamic take on traditional Irish music has garnered wide critical praise and featured on stages across three continents. With a sound described as “from unaccompanied song through to full Chieftains frenzy” (Folk World), the Dublin-based group arrange and interpret traditional Irish folk music on Uilleann Pipes, Harp, Fiddle, Whistles, Bodhrán, Banjo and more, taking influence from such early bands as Planxty, Dé Dannan and The Bothy Band. Skipper’s Alley first came to prominence in the summer of 2013 after winning the Loic Raison Trophy at Le Festival Interceltique de Lorient, an award previously won by such established acts as Danú and Clannad. Since then, the group have made several high profile TV and Radio appearances (The Late Late Show, Radio One’s Céilí House) and have toured in Ireland, England, Scotland, France, Germany, Denmark, India and Zambia.

Carlos Nunez - Carlos Núñez comes from Galicia, the Celtic region in North West Spain. He is considered one of the preeminent artists on the World/Celtic Music scene, with the depth of a classical music virtuoso and the charisma of a rock star. Carlos has expanded the borders of Celtic music to include Flamenco, Fado, Cuban, Mexican, Brazilian and Classical music, Movie Soundtracks, Contemporary Dance… As he describes it, he plays Celtic music with Latin passion.
