A mixture of Irish new and contemporary, Asturian, Breton and melodies from Balkan regions arranged to create a sound that pushes all boundaries of Irish music.
With their high-energy performances, breathtaking arrangements and their infectious melodies, its no wonder that this band are being described as â€œThe freshest sound in Irish musicâ€?.
With four members coming from Ireland and one from Brittany it is inevitable their mix of music is not just Irish but also Breton, Middle Eastern, Galician and newly composed.
Guidewires have an all-star line up with Irish musicâ€™s most famous concertina player PÃ¡draig Rynne, Breton musicâ€™s hottest name Sylvain Barou on Flute, one of Irelandâ€™s most recognisable names TÃ³la Custy on fiddle, top producer and performer Paul McSherry on guitar and one of the fastest growing stars in Irish music, Karol Lynch on Bouzouki.
All members have had renowned fame individually within music. Their love and passion of this music has brought them together to create this unique and groundbreaking band â€œGuidewiresâ€?. The bands debut album "Live" was described by The Irish Times as " A spectacular, multicoloured debut". This band can only continue to push music to the edge of its boundaries.
