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!
Diaspora started 2014 with a special night of finest music and craic at the Great Bow Wharf. We were given a real welcome by the audience and the evening was finely compered by John Robinson. Some special guests including the World's Fastest Banjo Player Johnny Butten made for a really entertaining evening.
Go to our Gigs page for details of not one, not two, but three really great gigs during St Patrick's week - we'd love to see you there!
All of us grew up listening to the great Pete Seeger who has at the age of 94 hung up his banjo and gone to the great Protest March in the Sky.
We owe him...
