About This Event:

International touring artists return to our stage!! Téada (meaning "strings" in the Irish language) revels in the vibrant traditional music of their native Ireland. "If there is a better new band on the Emerald Isle, they must be very, very good," Scotland's Edinburgh Evening News wrote of Téada's 2003 debut album.

International touring artists return to our stage!! Téada (meaning "strings" in the Irish language) revels in the vibrant traditional music of their native Ireland. "If there is a better new band on the Emerald Isle, they must be very, very good," Scotland's Edinburgh Evening News wrote of Téada's 2003 debut album.

Téada was founded in 2001 by Sligo fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada along with button accordion player Paul Finn. They're joined by Seán Gavin on flute and uilleann pipes and Patrick Doocey on guitar.

Téada's textural arrangements, charged with a vibrant energy, play up the structural intricacies of Irish traditional tunes passed down through generations. The Irish Times has praised the band for "keeping the traditional flag flying at full mast."

Téada captures the rawness and individuality of the solo artist within a modern group context. The band has headlined major music festivals throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Africa, Russia, Israel and Australia. We are pleased to welcome them back for their third Susquehanna Folk concert.
