About the Band
Best known as a powerful writing and performing duo, Niall Teague and Padraic Joyce have developed their craft as songwriters and performers and grown in popularity since winning the Panceltic international song contests in 2018. Influenced by their local Galway community, culture, and sounds, they perform music that speaks to fans across the musical spectrum.

Their signature style has become synonymous with diverse melodies, tight vocal harmony and compositions influenced by folk, country, blues and roots music . This band is on the rise, with new songs and live appearances with artists such as Sharon Shannon and John Spillane, they are well on their way to the success they’ve worked so hard for.
