About this

Hailing from the cities of Armagh and Derry, Ciara McCafferty (vocals), Ciaran Carlin (Flute/Whistles) and Paul Starrett (Guitar) Emer Mallon (Harp) and Conor Mallon (Uilleann Pipes/Whistles) have been quickly making an impact on the folk/traditional scene. Since the release of their EP in April 2015, and album “River Waiting” in July 2016 they have received fantastic reviews at home and internationally. Songlines magazine made Connla a “must see act” and stated “A band this young shouldn’t be this good”. Their sensitive and innovative arrangements of traditional and modern folk songs and tunes, have helped them create a sound which is very identifiable as Connla.

Is as Ard Mhacha agus Doire, Ciara McCafferty (Ceol Gutha), Ciaran Carlin (Fliúit/Feadóga) agus Paul Starrett (Giotár) Emer Mallon (Cláirseach) agus Conor Mallon (Píoba Uilleann/Feadóga). Ba ghasta an tionchar a bhí acu ar dhomhan cheol na ndaoine/an cheoil thraidisúnta. Ó eisíodh a EP in Aibreán 2015, agus a nalbam “River Waiting” in Iúil 2016, rinneadh léirmheasanna maithe orthu sa bhaile agus go hidirnáisiúnta. Luaigh Songlines magazine gur “must see act” Connla agus mhaígh siad “A band this young shouldn’t be this good”. Chuidigh cóirithe íogair agus nuálaíocha a gcuid amhrán agus port cheol na ndaoine agus ceoil thraidisiúnta leo ceol a chumadh atá uathúil agus inaitheanta mar cheol Connla.
