Celebrating 21 years as one of Ireland’s leading traditional bands. Téada, an Irish band, plays traditional music. Téada is Irish for “strings”. The five members of the band are fiddle player Oisín Mac Diarmada, button accordion player Paul Finn, Damien Stenson performs on flutes and various whistles, Seán Mc Elwain switches between the bouzouki and guitar and bodhrán player Tristan Rosenstock.
