Artist Intro: Cúig

Cúig (IRE) are a modern trad band of five fairly young guys who already have two very good albums under their belt.

They have a sturdy drums & bass rhythm section on top of which the vocals and the traditional instruments operate, so they’re a bit of a hybrid, like Skerryvore in that band’s more trad moments, perhaps. With lots of energy, it’s modern Irish folk and trad with a bass drum beat.

I like them a lot, especially as the fresh and fun feel of the first album has developed much more depth and nuances on the second album, The Theory Of Chaos (2018). They’re a very talented band on a very good path.
