A warm welcome from Diaspora - Dia daoibh a chairde!
We have been described as a long established “feel good” Irish Band, which celebrates the music and traditions of the historic Irish Diaspora and entertains with an eclectic mix of Folk and other influences - listen to our music, read about us, judge for yourselves!
With the Referendum only days away, Chris has penned a topical number based on the Clash's hit Should I Stay or Should I Go which no doubt will be sung at Eli's at the end of the month.
We all wish our good friend Jim Wood a very happy 70th and join in celebrating his and Michele's Golden Wedding. Due to a combination of factors associated in large part to the band member's and their families' ailments we had to cancel our gig but we will be over in Cardiff some time in the future to make it up!
We we're told by ill informed people that they are sorry that Diaspora is disbanding. Don't worry - we have absolutely no intention of disbanding.
Robert is living near Malvern and remains very much part of the band. He travels to rehearsals and gigs and is still running the band's website, on whih note sends apologies for the recent glitch which led to us going off air for a while - thanks to Rana Rapida Design for sorting it out!
And then there's Eli's - this is where we shall be continuing to hold our Open Night every last Thursday of the month, and Robert aims to make these too.
So keep calm and carry on listening to the great Irish sound of Diaspora.
