The Blackwater Céilí Band hails from the Clogher Valley region of County Tyrone, in the heart of Ulster’s musical landscape. Since their formation in 2015, the band have risen to prominence and are widely recognised as one of the finest exponents of Irish Traditional Music. They bring boundless energy and passion to every performance, creating fresh musical interpretations with distinctive character and detail, firmly rooted in the Ulster tradition.
In 2018, the Blackwater made history, claiming the prestigious Senior All-Ireland Céilí Band title at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann in Drogheda. Consequently, they became one of only three Ulster bands to accomplish this feat, cementing their place in the annals of céilí band folklore.
Building upon their landmark success, the band have toured extensively across Ireland and Britain, bringing their signature sound and rhythmical musical style to many captivated audiences. They subsequently released their debut album ‘Music In The Valley’, to critical acclaim in 2019. The recording has been described as “one to savour, showcasing a versatile and orchestrated band at the top of their game”. The Blackwater Céilí Band are now proud to present their long-awaited second studio recording, ‘Northern Landscape’.
