Since forming in January 2011, The Bonny Men quickly and deservedly became one of the most talked about and exciting acts to emerge in the Irish trad/folk music scene. Upon releasing their highly acclaimed debut eponymous album in October of that year, the band quickly established themselves as the hottest ticket in Irish music. The Bonny Men have played at some of the most prestigious festivals across the globe, with their reputation for electric performances securing them gigs in Ireland, England, Scotland, France, Indonesia, Germany, Italy, Denmark and India. Their first album reached no 1 in the Irish Music Magazine charts, with the magazine's editor Sean Laffey stating, "this is a stunning debut album, filled with energy and references to the best Irish ensemble work from the heydays of the 1970's...they will be the big bookable band.”

Television appearances have been in abundance of late. Documentaries about the band, as seen on Tg4’s ‘Ar Thóir an Cheoil’ and music shows such as BBC’s ‘Cuisle’ and most recently, ‘Bosca Ceoil,’ have showcased the band’s talents to the nation and continue to exponentially increase their fanbase.

Comprised of seven individuals, each masters of their own instruments, with titles among them including multiple All-Ireland Champions, World Bodhrán Champion and a recipient of the prestigious ‘TG4 Young Musician of the Year’, The Bonny Men generate a powerful sound that encapsulates the very soul of traditional music. Singing a mixture of original and contemporary folk songs, laden with creative harmonies, and playing sets of tunes bursting with explosive energy, their music always delivers. With clever and intriguing arrangements, never shy of character or personality, every Bonny Men gig is a musical experience from start to finish.

Album

'Moyne Road', is the second album by The Bonny Men. Named after the street in the suburb of Ranelagh, Dublin 6, this is the home of the Ó'Casaide family, and also where all the bands rehearsals take place.

This new album exposes The Bonny Men's trademark high-octane musical sets, full of life, creativity and character. Their latest album also sees the band take a creative step in original song composition. Expect to hear harmony rich folk songs in both languages of English and Irish.

Recorded live in Beech Park & Marguerite Studios, 'Moyne Road' delivers the essential Bonny Men sound from start to finish that has made this band one of the best of their generation.
