Lovers of harmonies and the incredible instrument that is the human voice will find a musical Mecca in Westport Town Hall on Friday next (July 3 ) as Coda are to play their first concert there.
This local, all male, seven-strong group is becoming something of a phenomenon nationwide as their richly-harmonised approach to vocal performance reaches an ever growing audience.
Guest artists Tony Reidy and Graham Sweeny will support this performance.
If you have heard Coda before - do not miss them in this acoustically perfect new venue. If you have not heard Coda before - do not let this opportunity pass.
Formed four years ago from Cór Mhaigh Eo members, Coda revel in experimenting with their voices and an eclectic mix of musical styles including Celtic and North American music, traditional and contemporary folk songs, and original compositions.
Popular songs from sources as diverse as Clannad, Tom Waits, Van Morrison, and The Beatles get the special Coda treatment too.
The group’s repertoire comprises both a cappella arrangements and songs with instrumental accompaniment (guitar, mandolin, banjo, whistle, flute, fiddle ) as well as traditional Irish music.
Coda have performed many concerts around Ireland and on national TV and radio. They were outstandingly successful at the Temple Bar Tradfest in Dublin.
They have released one successful CD, 'Mouthmusic', and have another in the pipeline. They are also planning a UK tour in 2016.
The date for the diary is Friday July 3, starting at 9pm. Tickets are available now from Westport Town Hall Theatre. Telephone (098 ) 28459.
