Sorry to those in the Capital District but this one snuck up on me. And sorry to those out in webland who cannot attend a concert in upstate New York.
Bua's promo at Old Songs says, "A quartet comprised of some of America’s most talented young musicians, Bua plays Irish traditional music with “a precision and intensity that is rarely heard on this side of the Atlantic.” Their sound stands out among modern bands in the genre by “keeping the music down the path of tradition” and reminding listeners of such fondly-remembered greats as The Bothy Band and Planxty."
I add: Performing both instrumental and sean nós singing, they have something for everyone.
