Artist Intro: The Bothy Band

The Bothy Band (IRE) were a groundbreaking, legendary Irish band, active between 1974-1978. Along with other contemporary trad groups like Planxty and also trad-influenced Irish rock bands of the time such as Horslips, The Bothy Band played a crucial role in updating traditional Irish music and making it alive and inspiring for a new generation without ever going electric or adapting their music for pop audiences of the time. Their albums, both studio and live, are today as fresh as when they were released and continue to be a benchmark for any current Irish folk band.
