THE VIBE: Gaelic Irish / traditional folk / rhythmic / powerful
Get ready for a cracking good time in The JAI with the multi-award-winning Irish quintet Goitse (“Go-witcha”). If you find yourself leaning in to their music, it is no coincidence. The name Goitse means “come here” in Gaelic, and their music has a distinctively captivating quality. Named Live Ireland’s “Traditional Group of the Year,” Chicago Irish American News’ “Group of the Year,” as well as winning the prestigious “Freiburger International Leiter 2016” award in Germany, Goitse have become a leader of the new generation of traditional Irish ensembles. Goitse’s distinctive sound lies in the quality of their own compositions interspersed with traditional tunes from the countryside of Ireland and abroad, which make each performance unique.
