The Moy Sessions: Billow Wood in concert

The Moy Sessions presents Billow Wood in concert.

BILLOW WOOD: A small, intimate gig for a hometown audience, this Billow Wood experience is like none before. Their original music is making waves around Europe folk festivals. Their fresh sound integrates Irish instrumentation (harp, tin-whistle, accordion, fiddle) and mainstream sounds (guitar, bass and percussion) with mainstream pop/folk vocals and harmonies. The high energy, rhythmical chorus, punches and melodic tones to Billow Woods music is sure to set the band on the precipice of many new fans!

Laoise Kelly from Westport, Co. Mayo, now living on Achill Island, is regarded as the most significant harper of her generation. She has pioneered a new style of driving instrumental harping showcased in her three critically acclaimed solo albums Just Harp, Ceis and Fáilte Uí Cheallaigh. She is director of the Achill International Harp Festival, encompassing her role as musical director of music Suites Sraith Oileán Acla, Mayo-Breton & Ireland Galicia collaborations.

She has toured and performed globally and at festivals such as Womad, Celtic Connections, Celtic Colours, Tonder, Dranouter, Lorient, Milwaukee, Armagh Piping Festival and all major harp festivals in Europe.
