ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Iontach is a word from the Irish language meaning not only wonderful, but also strange… Luckily press reviews at home and abroad have used the former when describing the music of this Irish/British/German trio!

The band consists of the three renowned musicians Siobhán Kennedy from Dundalk, Co. Louth, Ireland, Nick Wiseman-Ellis from Norwich, England, and Jens Kommnick from Bremerhaven, Germany. The group was founded 2003 and started to perform in this line up 2016. The colourful mixture of emotional harmony singing together with fine arrangements of lively dance music and lyrical melodies has become their trademark. The wide range of instruments they play includes flute, fiddle, whistles, concertina, guitar, bouzouki, cello and piano. This coupled with their warm, open and humorous stage presentation has resulted in Iontach being one of the most sought after Irish traditional bands in the German scene.

The group has enjoyed successful tours and concerts throughout Germany, and in France, the Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, Austria and Switzerland. The largest German folk publication “Folker” chose Iontach’s first CD “The Half Gate” as CD of the month, and it was thus nominated for Folker CD of the year 2004. Other enthusiastic press reviews from Dirty Linen (USA), fRoots (GBR), Irish Music Magazine (IRL), Irish Times (IRL) and Hot Press (IRL) followed. 2007 Iontach released their second album “Jiggin’ It” which again got brilliant feedback (Hot Press/Irland, Irish Times/Irland, Le Canard/Belgien, Folker!/Deutschland, newfolksounds/Holland, etc.). One year later the band recorded their successful Christmas program “Flight of the Wren”, which was followed by their 4th highly praised album "a new journey" in 2016.
