The Bothy Band stand out as perhaps the most influential and revered of all the many ensembles who revolutionised the playing of traditional music in recent generations.  

For the first time since 1979, Donal Lunny (bouzouki), Tríona ní Dhomhnaill (keyboards), Matt Molloy (flute), Paddy Keenan (uilleann pipes, low whistle), Paddy Glackin (fiddle), Kevin Burke (fiddle) come together to perform their first public concerts as The Bothy Band. They are joined by Seán Óg Graham on guitar.  

Between 1975 to 1979 the band were to release four albums all of which are regarded as classics of their type. Incendiary live performances driven by a front line of fiddle, pipes and flute underpinned by the powerhouse rhythm section Mícheál Ó Domhnaill (guitar and vocals), Tríona Ni Dhomhnaill ((clavichord and vocals) and Donal Lunny (bouzouki) cemented their reputation as perhaps the most innovative and exciting combinations to play traditional music from these islands.  

Founder member, Mícheál Ó Domhnaill died in 2006 and Tommy Peoples who played fiddle on the bands first recording died five years ago.
