Bua (boo-ah) evokes the good times that are the core of Irish traditional music.  Precise, intense, and straight forward, the quartet is comprised of some of America’s most talented award winning musicians. They “raise the rafters with their playing, charm with their singing, and delight with their contemporary energy.” (Dirty Linen)  The Irish Music Association awarded them Top Traditional Group of 2009.
