Doolin’

Homebase:France/Ireland

Genre:Traditional Irish
Doolin’ is an Irish music group whose name derives from the little village of musical fame in south-west Ireland. Born in 2005 from an encounter between six accomplished musicians, since its inception Doolin’ have perfected a mixture of novel musical genres. Whilst some of the band were immersed in the world of traditional Irish music, and others were active in the jazz scene or in the pop-rock wave of the ’80s and ’90s, they found a common love in traditional Irish music. From ballads to furiously fast jigs, from their own compositions to traditional tunes, Doolin’ offers a rich palette of sound. From the intimate atmosphere of an Irish pub to the spectacle of the concert stage, this sextet has supported major names, such as Altan, Kevin Burke, Martin Hayes and Mairtín O’Connor. Members of Doolin’ have played with Carlos Nuñez and Dan Ar Braz, and the major Irish flute player Desi Wilkinson (De Dannan, Cran) rejoined the group for a tour in 2006. Habitués of prestigious venues where they seduce the audience by their unassailable energy, this French group plays homage to Irish music throughout France and Europe.
Doolin’ est un groupe de musique irlandais dont le nom est un dérivé d’un petit village connu pour sa musique dans le sud-ouest de l’Irlande. Alors qu’une partie du groupe était dès lors immergée dans le monde de la musique traditionnelle irlandaise et l’autre active sur la scène jazz ou la vague du pop-rock des années 80 et 90, ils se sont trouvé une admiration commune pour la musique irlandaise. Des balades aux gigues rapides, de leurs propres compositions aux chansons traditionnelles, Doolin’ nous offre une riche palette sonore.
