Téada
Inné Amárach
Compass

By Justin Hopper

Published April 27, 2007

When Téada first stormed the Irish traditional music scene four years ago, they were fodder for a music press waiting for something new. Here was a band of young, talented, good-looking lads, raised in the rural musical tradition but savvy to the new-Dublin, post-Celtic Tiger, Ireland–the publicity photo and club tour, rather than the samey trudge of folk societies and peat-fire politics. Well, Téada has grown up a bit–leader and Sligo fiddle sensation Oisín Mac Diarmada is now 28–and unfortunately for the cynics, Inné Amárach proves they’re simply one of the best traditional Irish groups in the world. Mac Diarmada seems to mature daily, his touch becoming more subtle and well-rounded. Tristan Rosenstock’s bodhrán is more melodic and intricate, Sean McElwain’s guitar and bouzouki more intuitive, while new flautist Damien Stenson and button accordionist Paul Finn keep the band fresh and invigorated. Irish instrumental music will rarely come better.
