This Irish five-piece band from the North of Ireland are tearing up the rule book with their bold approach to their native musical tradition. Since the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, “New Landscapes,” for which Cuig were awarded “Best New Irish Band 2016” by the Irish American News, they have taken both sides of the Atlantic by storm having toured extensively in the US, Europe, and Ireland. Comprising of Miceal Mullen (banjo, mandolin), Rónán Stewart (fiddle, uilleann pipes, vocals), Ruairí Stewart (guitars), Eoin Murphy (button accordion) and Cathal Murphy (drums, guitars, vocals), Cúig look set to continue this success with the release of their highly anticipated sophomore album, ‘The Theory of Chaos’.
Cúig will be performing at the 2019 DCF:Friday 9:50 PM - 11:00 PM (Heidelberg Stage)
