mistake on the group constitution
There is a misunderstood concerning the group Cosan.. in fact it is the Irish german band, COSAN who recorded the NEw Roads, none the Newfoundland based one.
Cosán – are four young, enthusiastic musicians from all over Germany who set out to combine the excitement and leisure of their “20-something generation” with high class musicianship and experience in the Irish music field. Traditional songs and tunes, predominantly hailing from Ireland with a pinch of other traditions – Swedish, Scottish and some from further afield - blend in with contemporary song-writing and their own compositions. Michaela Grüß, Barbara Hintermeier, Steffen Gabriel and Brian Haitz (son of the late Georges Carruthers, is well known Irish born concertina player and singer) all have considerable experience touring and recording on the professional Irish music circus in Germany and Europe with various bands (e.g. Trasnú, Nua, More Maids, Blue, Choonz and more).
