Moxie - Irish trad spliced with bluegrass and Jazz

Band to play Album launch show in Monroe's Live

Moxie.

Moxie.

BLUEGRASS, JAZZ, vocal harmonies, and world music rhythms, fed through the prism of Irish trad - this is the sonic essence of Irish band Moxie.

Moxie - Cillian Doheny (tenor banjo/guitar ), Jos Kelly (button accordion/keyboard ), Darren Roche (button accordion ), Ted Kelly (tenor banjo ) and Paddy Hazelton (percussion ) - play Monroe’s Live tomorrow (Thursday October 2 ) at 8.30pm as part of a series of sates to promote their debut album Planted. To get a taste of the band's sound, check out the video for the album's title track.

The band have supported major Irish trad acts like Dervish, Kila, and Frankie Gavin and The New De Dannan. Solas member and leading trad fiddle player Winifred Horan called Moxie’s music “soulful, sexy and full of passion” who play Irish trad “with many beautiful twists and turns...stunning harmonies and class playing from top to bottom”.

Lunasa's Kevin Crawford has called Planted "a stunning debut from five of the best musicians on the scene today; the fact that they are so young is both frightening and inspirational too...Their sound is sophisticated, slick and adventurous yet exciting, full of fun and overflowing with fresh ideas. Moxie's unique approach is both melodically and rhythmically addictive; surprises lurk around every corner."
