La Corte di Lunas (ITA)

Corte-di-Lunas_edited.jpg

UTTERN is a unique reality in the Italian and European panorama, combining power and femininity in an explosive mix of pagan-shamanic music. In a few years they have gained the attention and affection of thousands of fans, playing in the biggest Italian Celtic music festivals such as Triskell itself, Montelago, Monterenzio, Bundan, and many others. Their success stems from the genuine connection with the sacred feminine, the Divine Mother and the ancient feeling of Pagan Europe, which the public lives and makes vibrate within itself in every show. Their concert is a great musical ritual, where the water-fire-earth-air elements join the fifth, the Spirit. Music, sacredness and dance become a whole, sometimes whirling, sometimes mystical, with the aim of celebrating Life in all its fullness. Their long-awaited first EP was released on 21 September 2018, with excellent results: in the first month, "Gudinna" won third place in the Amazon.it rankings of folk music and in less than two months exceeded 1000 plays on Spotify .

To Loo Loose Reunion (ITA)

ToLoLoose_1.jpg

The "The To Loo Loose Band" was born in Trieste in 1995 from the encounter between elements active for years in the environment of folk music and incurable rockers, with the aim of experimenting with new arrangements on traditional Irish music. The To Loo Loose do not sound with the aim of faithfully reproducing the suggestions of green Ireland, but with the intent of lowering them into our musical and cultural reality. On the slanting rhythms or on the wild syncopates of the green island, they sew a sound capable of reviving the songs of the Irish tradition in completely new compositions. The 25-year career is approaching in which they have conquered all sorts of stages and interpreted countless pieces of the Celtic tradition, enriching in their own way the celtic standards with ingredients derived from the influences of the many musicians who have played in the band throughout this time.

The Gens d’Ys led by Umberto Crespi, bring their dances to almost all of Italy - from Milan to Rome, from Aosta to Trieste - in France to Switzerland and Germany. Thinking about the beginnings linked to tradition, the path followed is evident: following the exciting Riverdance and Lord of the Dance, the Gens d'Ys offer fascinating and sparkling performances in which the study of the past is now a solid foundation for the dynamism of rhythms more sustained. The different moments of the show, punctuated by the frequent change of costumes, alternate folk dances with surprising revisitations of the traditional steps performed with the "heavy shoes". The dances are both traditional and personal creation. For years, regular guests of the Triskell have been acclaimed, as well as partners of the Festival.

The Gamblers  (ITA)

From the hills of the Alto Canavese, dotted with deep woods and rural settlements where the old traditions still survive, come the Boira Fusca. The melodies proposed by them are rooted in time, when in the evenings the villagers at the end of a hard day gathered to dance, drink and tell each other new stories. Strengthened by this suggestion, the quintet has a CD and numerous concerts in some of the most prestigious musical realities located throughout Italy and Switzerland. Their music, to a large extent instrumental, is an electric reinterpretation of ancient traditional melodies, belonging mainly to the Celtic area, capable of transporting the listener in the presence of an arcane feeling that remains unchanging and unchanged through time.

Briantanus & Asmon (Fabula Duo)  (DE)

Songs of ancient magic, the wisdom of nature and the ecstasy of dance. Energetic and wild but also ethereal and dreamy sounds flow from the stage to the public. And again the theme of old myths and ancient legends, with their power and their secrets resounding in the band's music until today. These are the Waldkauz.
Based on historical and modern instruments, they combine their compositions with the influences of European folk music; danceable rhythms intertwine with catchy melodies and three-voice arrangements enchant the audience. They boast six years of experience as a traveling and stage group both nationally and internationally. Past high-level events include Wacken Open Air, Wave Gotik Treffen, Castlefest and the Autumn Moon Festival. The band also won the new award from Selb's renowned Mediaval Festival in Bavaria and performed numerous times at the Mittelalterlich Phantasie Spectaculum (MPS), the world's largest traveling medieval fair. In the spring of 2017 they released their second album Mythos, thus making a further leap in popularity. A refined and extensive production that gathers the attention and praise of the press and public from Germany and other European countries. Prior to this they released their debut album "Komm mit" which was very successful at the time.

A passion for Irish and Celtic music discovered almost by chance, after having "found in his hands" some traditional instruments. Why Micro Irish Band? They started in two on the end of 2012, without even imagining that soon they would be joined by new partners for the Crew. Traditional ballads, jigs, reels, hornpipes and sea shanties, not only Irish but also Scottish and Bretons, typical instruments or not, add a personal touch ... and the ingredients are all there! A show in continuous evolution, made up of fast-paced rhythms and engaging melodies, in which there will be moments of great atmosphere that will immerse you in the most mystical Ireland and will project you among its green meadows. A journey through music and the stories, dances and costumes associated with the Celtic lands, which will project you between the green meadows of Ireland and the Scottish Highlands until you reach Brittany.

There is no danger of getting bored, given the wide range of pieces proposed that comes from their research on the musical traditions of the various peoples of Europe, both in the past and nowadays. On stage they release a positive and contagious energy to make everyone dance and sing together. For the first time on the Triskell stage.

Pyrates! (NL)

The Autre Chants were born in 2011 from the meeting of the Rizzo brothers and the organ player Alessandro Strano. From that moment on, a musical understanding starts that begins to produce proper and traditional songs of the Occitan culture. Over time, other elements are added and, with various changes and alternations, 2015 comes when a bass player and a drummer join the group. At that point a change in the musical style appears inevitable; mixing the classic canons of Occitan, Celtic and Balfolk music with those of Punk, Reggae, Classic Rock and Hard Rock, and thus focusing on the great variety of traditional folk instruments which are accompanied with equal importance by the sound of more electric instruments and " heretics ", thus obtain a more full-bodied and decisive sound, able to reach larger audiences and a more heterogeneous audience. In 2016 they released their first self-produced self-titled album, followed by two singles in 2017.

Wooden Legs (ITA)

Wooden Legs.jpg

Selfish Murphy born in 2011 in Transylvania (Romania). The line-up chose a musical style that was previously unknown in Romania, it was the first band to play the so-called Celtic / Irish punk rock. Their songs convey the enthusiastic feeling of the Celtic lifestyle and the typical festive atmosphere of an Irish pub. Most of the songs are cheerful and easy to digest. In their repertoire we can find traditional Irish songs that are very popular all over the world such as: Drunken Sailor, All For Me Grog, Leaving Of Liverpool, Wild Rover etc., played in Celtic punk version. Then there are also covers of famous modern pieces such as: Wake Me Up, Hey Brother, With Or Without You and others, converted to Irish folk style. These songs are integrated with the band's own compositions, based on the simplicity and dynamism typical of the Drinking Song and Scottish Song. To sum up, the band can be identified with three words: music + beer + party = Selfish Murphy!
