Since forming in 2011 ,The Buachaills have gone from being an informal session group to playing in Croke Park for the All Ireland football final.They are now one of the most sought after Trad and Folk bands in Ireland and have played many noted venues such as Thomond Park and  Fraher Field in Waterford. The band comprises of Eoin Murphy on Vocals, Guitar and Mandolin , Aaron Dolan on Uilleann Pipes, Whistles and Vocals , Paudie O’Brien on Accordion and Guitar and Eamonn Mulholland on Percussion.

The band who have been described as “ The Mumford and sons of Irish trad” ( Evening Echo) bring an energy to their live performance that has every audience buzzing with excitement. Their love of Irish ballads and culture is plain to be seen while they bring this tradition to new audiences both young and old. The lads first came to prominence after they supported The High Kings , winning over fans of all generations with their unique take on classic ballads and modern folk songs . Following that they were awarded the RTE Radio John Murray Show new band of the year 2012 and played The Castlepalooza festival. More festival appearances followed as well as a support slot with Finbar Furey before the highlight of The Buachaills career to date, playing in front of 83,000 people at the All Ireland Final. The Buachaills finished off 2012 with a tour of Germany in November where they played 5 sell out nights and won over many new fans

To quote from the University of Los Angeles news paper The Daily Bruen  “Nothing can quite replace the experience of seeing this band live. The bandmates on stage play faster, louder and less restrained when they have an audience dancing in front of them.The band’s reverence for the musical style of the past meshes with the members’ musical style to create a set of songs that really doesn’t sound like anything being produced in the United States at the moment.” Already 2013 looks bright for The Buachaills with an appearance at the Heineken Cup match between Munster and Racing Metro in January.  With lots of festival bookings coming in there will be plenty of opportunities to see The Buachaills in 2013.
