Moyne Road

‘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.

The Bonny Men

The Bonny Men‘s debut album, self entitled ‘The Bonny Men’, was recorded live over four days in the internationally renowned Windmill Lane Recording Studios. The album captures the raw energy and life with which these young musicians play music.

Described as “a complete breath of fresh air“, and “an album that would remind you of the explosive power of The Bothy Band“, this album has all the hallmarks of an instant classic.

THE BONNY MEN

Since forming in January 2011, The Bonny Men quickly and deservedly became the most talked about and exciting acts to emerge in the Irish trad / folk music scene. With their new and upcoming third album “The Broken Pledge”, The Bonny Men have taken all of their collective experience and have shaped an album that delivers Traditional Irish music with a new and vibrant sound, all underpinned with the unique driving arrangements that The Bonny Men are known for.

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.
