Connla (IRE) are a fairly young and very talented Irish band who occupy a niche between excellently played Irish trad and a folk and even singer-songwriter style.
They have a pretty robust sound for an Irish outfit, really going at it in the faster tunes. This gives them an identity that’s nicely a bit different from Irish icons like Altan and Lúnasa who, while decidedly in the same genre, play with a lighter touch and sound.
Connla are still an up and coming band with their so far two albums (River Waiting in 2016 and The Next Chapter in 2018) but the recordings are very confident and convincing and have enough variety to promise much more good stuff in the future.
