Dannsair has achieved a depth and clarity in Irish music few expect from these centuries-old tunes. By combining jazz, classical and traditional Irish sensibilities they push the envelope of the sound into completely new territory.


The various members of Dannsair have been performing together on and off for seven years. Their styles are incredibly well suited to each other with the emotional Irish melodies melding into jazzy undertones, classical phrasing and danceable rhythms. The orchestrated arrangements, emotional fiddle & flute playing along with the percussion and bass bring a complete and essential sound to this traditional folk music.
