Beginish first came together in 1996 (under the name Samhain) with a series of performances throughout Ireland that spawned overwhelming pubic interest and a string of television appearances. This potent ensemble, which gathers together in one place some of the most significant musical talent in Ireland today, draws on the combined successes of its members both as solo artists and as members of Ireland's most important groups of the last 30 years. Their music is most deeply rooted in the West Kerry and Donegal styles. Both of these regional styles, while quiet distinct from one another, are noted for what the Irish call "swing", an infectious lift and danceability.
