Waterford City & County Council's Arts resource site
Thursday July 11th Christ Church Cathedral, Waterford.
The Cathedral welcomes back talented and popular musicians Goitse on the 11th July.
Last year, they wowed audiences with their warm and dynamic playing and we are so lucky to
have them back. Goitse’s distinctive sound lies in the quality of their own
compositions interspersed with well-known traditional tunes, which make
each set entertaining and unique. The gripping rhythm section sets a breath
taking pace for the music while through the sweet, charismatic voice of Áine
Mc Geeney draw audiences into the music in a way very few performers can
achieve. Lace up your dancing shoes and get ready for a night of wonderful
music and fast paced fun with Goitse.
Goitse are now a well known name across the globe for Irish Music and
have made a name for themselves as one of the most sought after bands
amongst connoisseurs of folk and traditional music across the globe. It
is rare to catch musicians like Goitse at this stage in their career, so do
not miss this chance to see them at the Cathedral again. *Goitse* is an
informal Gaelic Irish greeting meaning ‘come here’.
“This collection of original and traditional music is seamless flawless and
powerful, full of humor and energy that the members of Goitse are famous
for…” Jack Baker, Irish American News
“They play … with the wisdom of musicians with many more road miles beneath their belt.” **Siobhan Long, Irish Times*
