After a blinding performance at Grateful Fred’s in 2016 and following sell-out appearances around Europe and further afield we are delighted to have managed to bring them back.

Hailing from the cities of Armagh and Derry and are made up of Ciara McCafferty (vocals), Ciaran Carlin (Flute/Whistles) and Paul Starrett (Guitar) Emer Mallon (Harp) and Conor Mallon (Uilleann Pipes/Whistles).

Labelled as the Hottest New Group out of Northern Ireland, (Chicago Irish American News) Connla 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. They have already gathered a big following in the UK, Ireland, Europe and the USA.

Songlines magazine made Connla their “must-see act” for the tour of the UK and said “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.

To hear Connla in full flight is a sound and sight not to be missed.

Support: Two Black Sheep

Amy and Ian of “Two Black Sheep” played for us in 2017 with their wonderful 4 piece string quartet but this time they are playing as just themselves giving us the chance to hear the great songs in a stripped back style of acoustic guitar and violin.

Both Amy and Ian are gifted musicians and songwriters and in their “acoustic” pairing at Grateful Fred’s we’ll be able to enjoy their songs in the style they were first written.
