About the band

The two native Irishmen, who have found their home in Nuremberg, play lively Irish ballads and dance tunes and create the right pub mood.

 

Malon Way

Sunday, August 28th – 8pm

About the band

Malon Way was born as a trio in 2015 in Munich, Germany. Within a couple of short years gigging locally, the band grew into a five-piece. Shortly after this point in time, we gave into a new-found curiosity in both our harmonic sound and song writing. We then began to wonder what the world would think of it.

Two Time Polka

Friday, August 26th –  8pm                                                                                                                                                                                            Saturday, August 27th – 5pm

About the band

Award winning Irish group Two Time Polka play a fiery mixture of Cajun, Bluegrass and rock ’n roll music.
They are not unknown to spice up their live performances with flavours such as Argentinian tangos,
Brazilian and Puerto Rican dance tunes. With five albums to their credit, Two Time Polka has proven popular with radio stations receiving both national and international airplay. In 2005 they toured the US which led to the release of a compilation CD there. In 2011 Two Time Polka were winners in the Best Musical Act category, awarded to them by AOIFE, the governing body of festivals in Ireland.

Greensleeves

Friday, August 26th – 4.30pm

About the band

Greensleeves have been known in Bavaria for playing typical music from Ireland and the neighbouring isles for over 40 years. Artists Frank McLynn (Violin) and Alison Moffat (Accordion, Vocals) have stayed true to their musical roots and present the diversity of the culture. The warmth and passion they convey has become their trademark. Their sometimes engaging, sometimes comforting-melancholy music has no frills or pomposity, but is handmade and stormy: like a visit with friends in Ireland. Songs and tunes that stem from tradition and are still captivating today. As a guest musician: Alan Burke.

The Rakes of Mayfield

Saturday, August 27th – 3pm                                                                                                                                                                                            Sunday, August 28th – 3pm

About the band

The Rakes are versatile: their programme offers a varied mix of rousing pieces that tell of adventure and rebellion; poignant ballads of love and sorrow; instrumental pieces that inspire dancing and, of course, well-known ragamuffins and booze songs that cannot be missing from an Irish evening! Guitar, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, whistles, accordion and polyphonic vocals are all used in a Rakes concert.

The Paul Daly Band mit Gast Dieter Reiter

About the band

The Paul Daly Band has been known beyond the borders of Munich for their dynamic folk and engaging songs for a long time now. Paul Daly from Ireland, Phil Newton from England, Paul Solecki from the USA and Bettina Kuhn from Germany, play well-known and well-loved music from the 60s until today. The audience sings along enthusiastically even to their original songs when the band performs in pubs and on small stages, and also in large concert halls and festivals. Munich’s Mayor Dieter Reiter has been a regular guest musician at concerts in Munich and seems to have found his audience. Their music can be described as folk with a very Irish touch.
