about

Tá Réalta ar ceann de na bannaí ceoil is corraitheach da bhfuil againn sa traidisiún innu. Agus iad ar an fhód le níos mó na deich mbliana anuas tá an lucht éisteachta ag súil go mór leis an triú albam seo uathu “Thing of the Earth”.

Réalta, the dynamic Ulster-based Irish traditional group, are in the final stages of recording their eagerly anticipated third studio album Thing Of The Earth scheduled for release later this year. The band have joined forces with acclaimed Belfast singer Myles McCormack to record a special blend of traditional and contemporary tunes and songs, all performed with the group’s trademark passion and skill.
Formed in Belfast in 2012, Réalta quickly established themselves as one of the most exciting acts on the Irish music scene, earning stellar reviews for their live performances and innovative approach to traditional melodies. Irish Music Magazine described their debut Open The Door For Three as “A full bodied pipe and whistle extravaganza” and Herald Scotland wrote “Réalta carry on the Bothy Band tradition of taking tunes by the scruff of the neck and firing excitement through them like hot flames!”. Their follow-up album Clear Skies further confirmed Réalta’s position as
one of Ireland’s top traditional acts with IMM writing “Réalta have grown bigger, bolder and braver and this is one of the best CDs to have come out of Ireland this year!”

Audiences for the album launch can expect a special journey through energetic reels, rhythmic jigs, soulful airs and thought provoking songs… blending words and melodies from sources both old and new!
