Barefield Ceili Band
Barefield is a little village just outside the County Clare town of Ennis. This is the heartland of Irish traditional music and dancing. The band was thrown together at the age of eight, their teacher, Denis Liddy started them off on tin whistles for a Christmas concert, and things took off from there. They started entering competitions and won the ceili band 12 All Ireland title in Ballina in 1998. Since then that interest has grown into a serious commitment. In 1999 they recorded their first CD, Iolar and that brought them a trip to perform in Toronto and Connecticut. In 2003 they recorded their second CD, Flowers of the Burren and launched it at a festival in Spain in front of 6.000 people. They have played very successful concerts and ceili's in Cois na Habhna and Glor in Ennis and the Town Hall Theatre in Galway. IN August 2002 they played in Los Angeles, San Francisco and at the prestigious Milwaukee Irish Fest.
