Home / Biography / Téada


Irish traditional music group Téada (the name means “strings”) shaped in 2001 and quickly landed an area in the Irish tv program Flosc, which gave the group a system and an instantaneous audience. Gradually growing the lineup to add John Blake (flute, electric guitar, piano), Sean McElwain (bouzouki, banjo), Oisin Macintosh Diarmada (fiddle), Paul Finn (key accordion, concertina), Damien Stenson (flute), and Tristan Rosenstock (bodhran), Téada’s radiant interpretations of traditional reels, jigs, and hornpipes possess made them a favorite draw in the Celtic celebration circuit world-wide. The self-titled Téada premiered in 2003, accompanied by Provide Us a cent and WHY DON’T WE Be Eliminated in 2004, both from Green Linnet Information. Lá An Dreoilín made an appearance in 2004 from Gael-Linn. Compass Information released Inné Amárach in 2006.
