The Spanish Peaks International Celtic Music Festival is excited to announce the 2019 Festival debut for HighTime. This fresh new trio from the heart of Connemara, Ireland combines Irish music and an intriguing blend of modern folk influences to produce a rich sound and exciting experience to delight listeners. Featuring an unusual line-up of flute, whistles, harp, bodhrán, guitar and vocals (with some Irish dancing steps thrown in!), HighTime make a youthful and energetic statement.
Equal measures of music and tradition from old Ireland coupled with bold new arrangements make for a tasty platter of music, song and dance from these three young men. All from the village of Ardmore on the rugged west coast, Ciarán, Conall and Séamus have been immersed in the region’s rich and diverse musical heritage their whole lives.
HighTime play with a breathtaking energy and passion that is both effortless yet drivingly soulful and fun. The brothers, Conall and Séamus, and neighbour and friend, Ciarán, have a unique and virtuoso musical connection through so many years of performing together and individually; all the while enchanting audiences worldwide with music, song and dance steeped in the well of Irish tradition – No doubt their music and energy-fueled live performances are sure to get the hands clapping and toes tapping! High Time will teach and perform at Spanish Peaks Celtic Fest September 19-22.
