Biography

Rógairí is one of Regina’s best Celtic bands, a fun-loving group of six talented musicians from a variety of backgrounds, both classical and traditional, who draw their inspiration both from the ‘modern’ Celtic sound of such groups as Solas, Danu and Altan, as well as from the traditional repertoire. Rógairí formed over a year ago just in time for St. Patrick’s Day 2006 and since then have been in high demand, performing around Saskatchewan, as well as in Alberta. As a Traditional Celtic band, Rógairí decided early on that they needed to represent a fresh new sound and fill a gap in the Regina music scene, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.
