Iontach on Irish Radio!

The wellknown Irish singer, guitarist, songwriter and radio presenter Colum Sands did an interview with us at the Folkfrühling-Festival in Venne which was broadcasted in his radio show "Folk Club" on BBC Radio Ulster.

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!"
