MBT Bank & the Hanson Family Foundation proudly present Goitse at the North Iowa Community Auditorium on the NIACC campus at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 3rd, 2022. This presentation is part of the 2021-2022 Performing Arts and Leadership Series.
The popular and multi-award winning quintet Goitse is taking the Irish music scene by storm. Goitse (pronounced go-wit-cha) is an informal Gaelic Irish greeting meaning “come here.” Forged in the white-hot creative crucible of Limerick’s Irish World Academy, the group was named Live Ireland’s “Traditional Group of the Year” and Chicago Irish American News’ “Group of the Year.”
Goitse has released four critically acclaimed recordings and maintains a year-round touring schedule that includes performances throughout Ireland and the UK, Germany, France, and the United States. Their distinctive sound likes in the quality of their own compositions interspersed with traditional tunes from the countryside of Ireland and abroad, which make each performance unique. Laying the foundations for the music are World and All-Ireland Bodhrán champion Colm Phelan and Conal O’Kane, who is fast making a name for himself as one of the finest guitarists of his generation. The gripping rhythm section sets a powerful drive for the music while the sweet, charismatic voice of Áine McGeeney draws audiences into a song the way few performers can. Together, the group makes what Irish Music Magazine calls “Music that’s brimming with energy and creative zeal.”
“Come here” and experience a night of soaring vocals and sprightly instrumentals in a beautiful blend that’s perfect for the stage.
