From Switzerland to NYAH Land Scéalta Five piece band from from Switzerland are guests of the NYAH Comhaltas branch. All Comhaltas branches invited to join the NYAH Comhaltas youth from 7.30pm.
Scéalta (pron. Shkay-el-te in the Irish language) means stories. In the same way that one picture says more than a thousand words, so does one verse of a song catch the mood of one generation, one tune converts to a feeling of adventure. Our instruments portray the stories, the chapters of music are waiting to be told. To the listener who has visited Ireland before, Scéalta’s music may re-awaken images of green hills, stone walls, fuchsia hedgerows, wet brown bogs, steep sea cliffs, noisy sea gulls…
