Biography

What do you get when you take eight young men who have grown up together in Rose Creek Village (www.rosecreekvillage.com), and show them traditional Irish music? A weaving of virtuosic melodies and rhythms with joy, passion and love of life that creates an energetic musical experience that will astound you.

Kúla is a word that means brotherhood, and the bond of this band of brothers really shines in their music.

Here's some of what's being said about Kúla:

"... Joy and passion just absolutely pours forth from their performances... There's a feeling of a celebration always, a great joy and rejoicing in what they do that spreads very rapidly into the audience." - Dudley-Brian Smith, Smithfield Fair (www.smithfieldfair.com)

"...They've been bit by the [Irish music] bug. Hard. I certainly don't have to tell them to go for it; they obviously love doing what they're doing, and it really comes across. That, coupled with this all-too-rare sense of community that comes through them is what people respond to when they see Kúla. There's something special going on; part of it is this very vital connection to life and community and great music. What more could a person want?" - Tim Britton, Piper & Pipemaker (http://www.skep.com/britton/)

Kúla has performed at festivals such as the North Texas Irish Festival in Dallas, TX; the CelticFest in Jackson, MS; the Memphis Music & Heritage Festival in Memphis, TN; the Pangaea World Music Festival in Jonesborough, TN; as well as Scottish and Highland games such as the Panama City Highland Games in Panama City, FL and the Clanjamfry Scottish Festival in Memphis, TN.
