Ishna performs Contemporary Traditional Irish Music, and was formed in Dublin in 2009 by tenor Ciaran Nagle and violinist/vocalist Tara Novak. It focuses on the traditional music of Ireland, while also bringing into its arrangements the wealth of world music and contemporary influences it has within the members of its band. What does this mean? Lots of vocal harmonies, tongue-twister “patter” songs, ancient ballads, and plenty of up-beat instrumentals (get ready to dance some jigs & reels!).
