Celtic Czechs

Irish Dew

Sance (Indies Records, 2005)

Despite the name, this Celtic band is from the Czech Republic. Inspired by the
music of the Emerald Isle, Irish Dew performs traditional and original music
with contemporary Celtic arrangements. The group is led by virtuoso musician
Václav Vesely, who plays accordion and guitars.Irish Dew uses Irish instruments such as bodrhán, tin whistle, harp, and banjo.
But not all the influences are Irish. Irish Dew features several African
musicians on kora and jembe.
