May 27th – Beoga

Several of my students have expressed an interest in folk music recently so I’m going to keep sharing the occasional folk track on here!

This week I’m recommending a video by Beoga, who are an Irish band consisting of five musicians – a pianist, fiddle player (violin), a bodhran player (Irish drum), and two accordion players.

This tune is called Eoichaid and it was composed by Sean Og Graham, but this particular ‘arrangement’ of the tune will have been a collaborative process between all five members of the band.

And here’s a fun bit of trivia – you can hear Beoga playing on Ed Sheeran’s songs Galway Girl and Nancy Mulligan!
