The original Fleadh goes back as far as 1999 and the only remaining member of that era is uilleann pipes player Frank Weber. Frank Dürschner (mandolin, banjo, vocals) and Tommy Gorny (guitar, vocals) are other long standing members.

With the recruitment (2007) of singer/songwriter Saoirse Mhór and fiddle player Marcus Eichenlaub they received the needed 'breath of fresh air' to move the band forward.

The two Franks and Marcus are avid sessionists, regularly playing in the many Irish Pubs around the Pfalz area. Regular visits to Ireland keep them constantly in superb playing form.

The foundation ot the bandís sound is tastefully rounded off by their recently aquired bass player Thomas von Haefen

Fleadh seek to combine this section of the band with the vocalist/singer approach of Saoirse. Saoirse gets around Germany too - busking on the streets and at Street Artist Festivals in major German cities.

Tommy is the heartbeating drive on guitar in Fleadh. Intricate detailed arrangements and pulsating rhythm weaving through jigs, reels and songs. Tommy is also a well weathered musician known for his playing with the band Space Debris.

Since the release of their second studio album "The Cleggan Bay Disaster" the band have placed themselves among the best Irish Folk Bands in Germany and have gained recognition in the music press around Europe. They also hold the first place titles for Best World Music/Trad Album, Best Folk Album and Best Folk Song 2013 at the German Pop & Rock Awards.

Working as an Irish Folk Band Fleadh do not wish to leave the path for Middle Age Music or the all too eminent Acid/Punk/Neo Folk. Fleadh want to retain the respect for Irish music and yet seek to mix styles and ryhthm but still stay within the boundaries of Folk. Singing and playing. Thatís Fleadh!

Add Fleadh to your Festival, Concert or Cultural evening and get your piece of Ireland!
