The Teetotallers

What do you get when you combine the TG4 Gradam Ceoil Traditional Musician of the Year award winner for 2008, a key member of the acclaimed band Lúnasa since 1998, and a Grammy award nominee for 2009? The Teetotallers.

Three of the most praised and popular virtuosos in Irish traditional music today--fiddler and violist Martin Hayes; flute, whistle, and bodhrán player Kevin Crawford; and singer, guitarist, bouzouki and mandola player John Doyle performed together essentially on a whim at the 2010 Sebastopol Celtic Festival in California. But that whim turned into something wondrous for the audience and especially for the three musicians.

Out of that informal, inspired encounter has emerged a formal, formidable new trio, the Teetotallers, whose potent brand of Irish traditional music is meant to be drunk deeply and repeatedly. The Teetotallers represent a breathtaking summit of talent, skill, and imagination that will captivate followers of Irish traditional and other roots music everywhere.
