The dictionary definition of young Irish five-piece Moxie’s name – “force of character, determination, or nerve” – applies in spades to their thrillingly intrepid music, featuring twin tenor banjos and accordions, acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, drums and percussion. Adding influences from electronic, jazz, house, rock and world music, they take audiences on a gloriously wild ride. “Irresistible, revolutionary energy” (Irish Times)

Carrying the torch socially conscious folk music, the award-winning young Anglo/Irish duo Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar foreground their own original material on 2018’s fourth album Utopia and Wasteland, showcasing their classy guitar/fiddle interplay and Russell’s impassioned voice in songs addressing racism, the Grenfell fire and government incompetence.
