I thought that for Music Mondays today, we’d feature a fantastic traditional band, FullSet, based in Co. Tipperary. I really love the blend of old and new in their music. They choose folk songs to play that aren’t strictly Irish. Their repertoire includes folk tunes that are Scottish, American, and English as well.
All accomplished young musicians in their own right, FullSet create a stunning and unique sound that is full of energy and
innovation, whilst all the time remaining true to their traditional roots. In recent years this young group has received much critical
acclaim, even being compared to groups such as Danú & Altan by respected Irish Music Magazine.
FullSet have performed on some of Ireland’s most prestigious TV programmes including “The Late Late Show” and
TG4’s hugely popular Irish music series “Geantraí”. They have also performed at various festivals and venues across America
and Europe including Copenhagen Irish Festival, the Festival Interceltique de Lorient, The Michigan Irish Festival and also
The North Texas Irish Festival. During this time they have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in folk and world
music including Moya Brennan, Fred Morrison, Lúnasa, Carlos Núnez, Andy Irvine, Donal Lunny and Beoga.
Band members include:
Andy Meaney – Guitar
Eamonn Moloney – Bodhrán/Irish Step-Dance
Janine Redmond – Button Accordion
Martino Vacca – Uilleann Pipes
Michael Harrison – Fiddle
Teresa Horgan – Vocals/Flute
