Realta described by Irish Music Magazine as a full bodied pipe and whistle extravaganza, Réalta carry on the Bothy Band tradition of taking tunes by the scruff of the neck and firing excitement through them like hot flames!
Hailing from the Ulster city of Belfast, this award winning multi-instrumentalist group present an enchanting programme of dance music interspersed with the occasional story, air and song.
While Conor Lamb and Aaron OHagan pursue the melody on uilleann pipes and whistles, guitarist and vocalist Deirdre Galway explores the harmony and rhythms within the tunes. All-Ireland champions Dermot Mulholland and Dermot Moynagh complete the line-up with dynamic accompaniments on double bass, bouzouki, banjo, voice and bodhrán, making this one of the most exciting acts on the Irish music scene today.
The release of their second album, Clear Skies, has brought Réalta widespread critical acclaim, with the Irish Music Magazine summing things up by writing Réalta have grown bigger, bolder and braver and this is one of the best CDs to have come out of Ireland this year!. The band have toured extensively
bringing their unique take on Irish music to audiences accross Europe and as far afield as India and South Korea.
A performance by Réalta is joyous, energetic, foot-stomping, unforgettable and unmissable.
