Beoga is one of Ireland's top traditional bands and returns after releasing their 10th anniversary CD Live at 10. They have five members and two are keyboardists or accordion players, giving the band a unique sound, in some cases a true honky-tonk sound, different than many Irish bands. Beoga means "lively" in Irish. They play traditional instruments on both traditional and original material, and have a lead vocalist, the woman Niamh Dunne who sings both modern and traditional songs. The other band members are Damian McKee on button accordion, Sean Og Graham on guitars, button accordion, mandolin, bouzouki and bass, Eamon Murray on bodhran and other percussion, Liam Bradley on piano, keys and backing vocals. Naimh Dunne is also the band's fiddler.
