- The Bonny Men - The Broken Pledge
Since forming in January 2011, The Bonny Men quickly and deservedly became the most talked about and exciting acts to emerge in the Irish trad / folk music scene. With their new and upcoming third album “The Broken Pledge”, The Bonny Men have taken all of their collective experience and have shaped an album that delivers Traditional Irish music with a new and vibrant sound, all underpinned with the unique driving arrangements that The Bonny Men are known for. Comprised of seven individuals - each masters of their own instruments with titles among them including multiple All-Ireland Champions, World Bodhrán Champion, and a recipient of the prestigious TG4 “Young Musician of the Year” - The Bonny Men generate a powerful sound that encapsulates the very soul of traditional music. Singing a mixture of original and contemporary folk songs, laden with creative harmonies, and playing sets of tunes bursting with explosive energy, their music always delivers. With clever and intriguing arrangements, never shy of character or personality, every Bonny Men gig is a musical experience from start to finish.
"The Bonny Men have delivered another vibrant collection of well-tempered tunes and songs with extended and dynamic arrangements that unfold with surprising twists and turns... daring and unstoppable!" Steve Cooney
