Teada Event Description:
Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with the return of this traditional Irish band with a truly international audience!
Téada is a traditional band with a truly worldwide reach. In addition to their appearance on our Belleville Stage in March 2012, Téada has appeared as a frequent headliner at major music festivals throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Africa, Russia, The Middle East and Australia. Highlights include a 30,000-capacity stadium concert in Brittany, along with performances at Penang World Music Festival in Malaysia, Edmonton Folk Festival in Canada, Harare International Festival of the Arts in Zimbabwe, and an extensive 7-week tour of Japan / Taiwan in 2014 playing to audiences of 40,000 people.
Continuing to grow in vision, the band received a Yeats 2015 WDC Funding Award for a show production celebrating the Sligo-inspired poetry of W.B. Yeats. Téadas latest addition to the line-up is legendary West Kerry singer and accordionist Séamus Begley, winner of 2013 TG4 Traditional Singer of the Year.

TEADA! Yesss.... Teada is just a GREAT band! Simple as that. They have been around for quite a while and have recorded several albums. A few years ago, they were with us for our St. Pats show at Sanders and New Bedford and really wowed the audiences. Top notch individual players who come together seamlessly.
Seamus was originally scheduled for the concert but has had to cancel due to a touring conflict. However, Méabh Begley, Seamus' wonderful daughter and beautiful singer will in fact be with them.
This promises to be again, a great night. Check out their sound here....
