Are you ready for a little St. Patrick’s Day celebration a wee bit early? Then come to the Campanile Center for the Arts Sunday, March 16, 4 p.m., to hear one of Ireland’s hottest and liveliest upcoming bands perform the finest in traditional Irish music.
All accomplished young musicians in their own right, FullSet create a stunning and unique sound that is full of energy and innovation, whilst all the time remaining true to their traditional roots. In recent years this young group has received much critical acclaim and are set to thrill audiences throughout the world.
Following the tremendous success of their debut album “Notes At Liberty,” FullSet are quickly becoming one of the most well-known bands in the Irish music scene today. In 2012 FullSet were honored to receive “Best New Group Award” from the well-respected Irish American News as well as “Best Newcomer” in Bill Margeson’s Live Ireland Awards.
Michael Harrison, on fiddle, creates a distinctive sound using original and colourful techniques. Martino Vacca is an exceptional uilleann piper and employs his mastery of this instrument in all pieces arranged by FullSet. Talented musician Janine Redmond, on button accordion, maintains a rich traditional style that is becoming ever-so-rare in traditional music today. Eamonn Moloney on bodhrán and Andy Meaney on guitar effortlessly blend the music together with a sensitive yet driving accompaniment section. The emotive singing style of Teresa Horgan completes the ensemble and is guaranteed to captivate audiences of every generation.
To-date, FullSet have performed on some of Ireland’s most prestigious TV programmes and have also performed at various festivals and venues across America and Europe including Copenhagen Irish Festival, the Festival Interceltique de Lorient, The Michigan Irish Festival and also the North Texas Irish Festival. During this time they have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in folk and world music. 2013 also shaped up as a very exciting year for FullSet with the release of their second album “Notes after Dark.”
