GOITSE to perform at Flowerfield Arts Centre as part of NI tour

Fri, September 22, 2023

Traditional music sensations GOITSE are touring NI this October with Moving On Music, supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and will be stopping at Flowerfield Arts Centre, Portstewart on Friday, 6th October.

The multi-award winning five piece have amassed five critically acclaimed records and with a busy year-round touring schedule, we are delighted to present this rare performance at Flowerfield. They will also be performing at Market Place Theatre, Armagh & Duncairn Arts Centre, Belfast.

Together, the quintet Goitse makes what Irish Music Magazine calls “Music that’s brimming with energy and creative zeal”. Their distinctive sound lies in the quality of their own compositions interspersed with traditional tunes from Ireland and abroad.

Laying the foundations for the music are World and All-Ireland Bodhrán Champion Colm Phelan, along with Conal O’Kane, who is fast making a name for himself as one of the finest guitarists of his generation. The gripping rhythm section sets a powerful drive for the music while the sweet, charismatic voice of Áine McGeeney draws audiences into a song the way few performers can. Multi-instrumentalist Alan Reid features mainly on banjo and bouzouki, drawing from an extensive knowledge of archival collections of Irish, which enriches the bands repertoire. Daniel Collins is a multi-instrumentalist All-Ireland Champion and is known for his distinctively intricate bass work on accordion.

There are limited tickets remaining, which are priced at £20 full, £18 concession.  This event will be seated cabaret style and it is BYOB. Tickets are available from: or by calling reception on 028 7083 1400.
