ARMAGH will be treated to a music extravaganza on Saturday 20 April when the extremely popular band Bréag visit the Cathedral City for the first time. Bréag, who will be playing in Kelly’s Bar, are renowned throughout Ireland for their lively concerts and have gathered a cult following throughout the island and further afield with their infectious brand of modern Celtic, reggae, ska and world music. All proceeds from the night will go to the ‘Run for Dáithí’ charity appeal. A small admission fee of £5 will contribute to this very worthy cause.
Formed initially to raise money for local Irish language schools, Bréag have become one of the most refined and original acts of their kind. Over the last decade, having performed as far afield as Sri Lanka, Bréag have developed a Celtic fusion never before heard. The first generation of urban Gaelic speakers in modern Belfast, their Gaelic heritage permeates through their lyrics and music. With Eastern European and Latin American traditional styles, branched with roots of reggae and ska, Bréag give the listener, and inevitably the dancer, a unique musical experience.
