Bua evokes the good times that are the core of Irish traditional music. Precise, intense, and straight forward, they are a refreshing change in today’s highly polished musical world. Bua stands out among modern bands in the genre by staying strong in the path of the tradition, yet still able to “raise the rafters with their playing, charm with their singing, and delight with their contemporary energy.” (Dirty Linen) The Irish Music Association awarded them Top Traditional Group of 2009. In Irish the name Bua means talent, merit, destiny, and more – they are well named.
