ANOTHER COUP FOR THE WARTHOG TEAM. CUA, who now normally play to larger audiences, are returning to the intimate setting of the Old Ship Inn – GRAB A TICKET NOW WHILE YOU CAN AT A BARGAIN PRICE
John Davidson, Shane Booth & Ros O’Meara bring together dynamic and contrasting instrumentation and vocal arrangements. The group have an expansive acoustic soundtrack blending guitars, fiddle, bouzouki, percussion and 3-part harmony arrangements to create a world music folk styling that the group call Atlantean. Soaring melody lines, intense a capella vocals and complex rhythmic structures will have the blood pumping through even the coldest of auditoriums. The cua live experience has been compared to the melodic intricacies of Planxty combined with the harmony skills of Crosby, Stills and Nash.
In the last couple of years cua have played 3 UK tours, two sold out shows at Celtic Connections, released two 15-track albums and most recently closed out Seán Rocks’ Arena outside broadcast live from Dublin Castle and last week a sold out show at The Pepper Canister Church as part of Templebar Tradfest.
cua truly pride themselves on their diversity, with subtle nods to many genres, whilst keeping a folk, world, roots and traditional line throughout. All members are multi-instrumentalists and are inspired by many aspects of the musical spectrum including roots, blues, gospel, jazz fusion, traditional, bluegrass and more. Their approach to music is inspired by the history, landscape and peoples of the Atlantic areas.
A new single just released, a brand new album coming too and a string of ‘live’ dates announced for early next year. Check out this teriffic new video from Cua (and full list of tour dates) at Folk Radio UK today…: https://www.folkradio.co.uk/
