IONTACH update: Nick Wiseman-Ellis!

We are thrilled that Nick Wiseman-Ellis has joined IONTACH replacing our good friend Angelika Berns who recently retired from the band. Nick comes from England and studied Folk Music in Newcastle University (accordion and fiddle) where he achieved an honours degree. He has worked with renowned musicians such as Kathryn Tickell and Karen Tweed and we are enjoying the many new sounds we can now create together.


Welcome to the website of Iontach!

Iontach is a word from the Irish language meaning not only wonderful, but also strange…  Luckily press reviews at home and abroad have used the former when describing the music of this German and Irish trio! Iontach was formed in 2003. The colourful mixture of emotional harmony singing together with fine arrangements of lively dance music and lyrical melodies has become their trademark.  The wide range of instruments they play includes flute, fiddle, uilleann pipes, whistles, concertina, guitar, bouzouki, cello, keyboard and bodhrán.  This coupled with their warm, open and humorous stage presentation has resulted in Iontach being one of the most sought after Irish traditional bands in the German scene.

"Charming, endearing and virtousic: IONTACH!" (Weser Kurier)

"
world weariness
and hope: varied instrumentals and beautiful a-cappella-singing!" (Darmstädter Echo)

„Iontach: three wonderfully talented singers and musicians!"
