“There’s method in the seeming madness of Beoga, the most exciting new traditional band to emerge from Ireland this century.” Wall Street Journal

Beoga (gaelic for ‘lively’) are based in County Antrim, in the north of Ireland and provide the sensational live music for the Take The Floor Show. The band are hugely successful and have appeared on the front page feature in the St Patrick’s Day edition of the Wall Street Journal and In 2010 their album ‘The Incident’ was shortlisted for a GRAMMY nomination for Best Contemporary World Music Album.

The bedrock of their sound lies firmly within the Irish tradition. However, they are not afraid to incorporate other genres’ nuances into their music. From bluesy riffs to Astor Piazzola-style jazz, to a raunchy New Orleans jamboree vibe, their music always returns to a wonderfully bouncy Irish sound. The result is traditional, with a huge sense of fun and adventure which when married with the flying leaps, rhythmical percussion and masterful choreography of the Take The Floor dancers becomes something magical, extraordinary and out of this world!
“Nobody does this stuff better at the moment. Beoga are at the forefront of the new Irish wave.” Irish Music Magazine
