Irish folk band Beoga are pleased to announce a headline Belfast show at The Limelight 1 on Saturday, April 17th 2021. Following on from the release of their highly coveted singles ‘Make A Mark’ (featuring Ryan McMullan), ‘In A Rocket’ (with Lissie) and ‘Matthew’s Daughter’ (featuring Devin Dawson) throughout the year so far, Irish outfit Beoga are celebrating the release of their new mini-album ‘Carousel’ which was released on May 22nd.
Coinciding with the mini-album’s release on May 22nd, the band streamed live, featuring a host of special guests including; Foy Vance, Lissie, Ryan McMullan, Stephanie Rainey, Niall McCabe, and Devin Dawson, as well as exclusive interviews and a live Q&A with the band themselves.
‘Carousel’ was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Jonny Coffer and finds the band focusing on creating attention-grabbing hooks with a mix of rootsy instrumentation and elements of electronic pop production.
The ‘Carousel’ title was chosen to reflect Beoga’s experiences over the past two years. They’ve navigated the murky waters of the music industry, signing and then escaping two recording contracts before teaming up with AWAL. It’s been a long and frustrating experience, but looking back they realise that they’ve been more creative than ever before. In addition to ‘Carousel’, they also have the bones of a further two or three albums in place. Everything’s set up for Beoga to reach a whole new audience.
With an adventurous spirit and a passion for charting the road less travelled, Beoga have shown that Irish traditional music can take fresh new directions. That world-facing potential was proven by the popularity of their collaborations with Ed Sheeran on his all-conquering ‘÷’ album. Those two songs – ‘Galway Girl’ and ‘Nancy Mulligan’ – have been streamed over a billion times on Spotify alone.
Beoga will follow the release of ‘Carousel’ with a UK headline tour later this year.
