Féile An Earraigh 2021 - The Rapparees

The Rapparees are all based in Belfast, a hotspot of Irish musical tradition, and have been putting their own spin on folk & traditional Celtic music for the last 15 years. The band consists of Gerry, his cousin Joe, his lifelong school friends Kevin and Conor, and the latest member of the band Stephen, who joined in 2017.

Theirs is a distinctive sound, the kind forged growing up together. They have recorded four studio albums, their latest ‘Recharged’ in 2019 – do not miss this St Patrick's Day virtual gig recorded especially for this years' Féile an Earraigh.

Tá The Rapparees uilig lonnaithe i mBéal Feirste, ceann de phríomháiteanna an cheoil thraidisiúnta Éireannaigh. Bhí siad ag cur a gcuma féin ar cheol na ndaoine agus ar an cheol thraidisiúnta Cheilteach le 15 bliana anuas.

Sa bhanna ceoil tá Gerry, a chol ceathrair Joe, a chairde scoile fadsaoil Kevin agus Conor, agus an ball is déanaí den bhanna ceoil Stephen, a chuaigh sa bhanna in 2017. Tá fuaim shuntasach acu, an sórt fuaime a cruthaíodh agus iad ag fás aníos lena chéile. Tá ceithre albam stiúideo taifeadta acu.

Taifeadadh an ceann ba dhéanaí s’acusan ‘Recharged’ in 2019. Ná caill an gig fhíorúil seo ar Lá Fhéile Pádraig a taifeadadh go háirithe do Féile an Earraigh na bliana seo.
