Returning for their third concert, IMT favorites Téada has been called "one of the most exciting traditional groups to emerge in recent years" (Irish World). The Irish quintet was voted "Best Traditional Newcomers" in Irish Music Magazine, and have released two highly regarded albums on Green Linnet. Led by Sligo fiddler Oisín MacDiarmada, the young musicians shared a passion for the deeply traditional approach. Most of the group's members grew up in rural Ireland, learning traditional music through local classes and by listening to older musicians. "It was
really a very organic process," says Oisín who is joined in the band by Seán McElwain from Monaghan on banjo and bouzouki, Paul Finn from Co. Laois on accordion, Dubliner Tristan Rosenstock on bodhrán (Irish drum), and Sligo flutist Damien Stenson. Their new CD Give Us a Penny and Let Us be Gone has garnered high praise. Irish Music Magazine calls it "one of the most deeply satisfying works to come our way in a long time."
