Irish folk band Beoga are pleased to announce a headline show at the Ulster Hall on Thursday 19th December 2019. Following on from their stunning single ‘Matthew’s Daughter’ Irish quintet Beoga are back again with their new single Let You Go, that includes GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Anderson East.
Most bands will have plateaued after fifteen years in the game, but Beoga aren’t most bands. Describing themselves as “new wave trad”, 2017 saw Beoga tick off an enviable list of accomplishments from their shared bucket list. But that’s just the start of the story, as their recent experiences have inspired a bold new chapter in the quintet’s tale.
The turning point came when Beoga collaborated on two songs on Ed Sheeran’s global hit album ‘÷’. After it shot to the top of the charts all over the globe, those two tracks – ‘Galway Girl’ and ‘Nancy Mulligan’ – accumulated over 687 million streams at Spotify. Suddenly those landmarks events came thick and first. A first chart-topping hit in Ireland? Done! A guest slot during Sheeran’s Glastonbury headline set? Completed! A debut appearance on Top of the Pops and the Billboard Music Awards? In the bag.
Throughout their five albums to date, Beoga have always pushed the boundaries of the Irish trad sound by embracing everything from bluesy riffs to a raunchy New Orleans jamboree vibe.
Following the release of ‘We Don’t Have To Run’ in 2018, an exciting genre bending collaboration with Ryan McMullan, and the first taster of the band’s new direction, the quintet have refined their focus to finding the precise intersection between trad music and contemporary pop. Beoga recently signed to Columbia Records and are working on new music that does just that.
