Performing on uilleann pipes, whistles, bodhrán, guitar, bouzouki, banjo, double bass and vocals, Réalta’s unique sound and masterful musicianship has secured their position as one of the most exciting acts on the Irish traditional music scene today. The Ulster based band has toured extensively throughout Europe, America and as far afield as India and South Korea, earning them a reputation as ambassadors of the tradition. fRoots magazine writes “Their approach is distinctive and invigorating and the results amazing!” while Herald Scotland suggest “Réalta carry on the Bothy Band tradition of taking tunes by the scruff of the neck and firing excitement through them like hot flames”.
Joining Réalta is special guest Myles McCormack on guitar, mandolin and vocals. Beyond his work as a founding member of innovative folk outfit Lonesome George, the Belfast songwriter’s 2019 solo release ‘Real Talk’ was hailed as a “A sublime and carefully crafted debut” by The Thin Air.
