RÍ RA and Loes van Schaijk

CZ/NL


A group of Irish music from Prague. Anyone would like to know what “Rí Ra” actually means. „Well, the meaning of this term must remain under the guise of secrecy for ethical reasons … but maybe we will tell you during our premiere performance at Celtic Night 2022 in Plumlov.” The band has in its repertoire songs and ballads in English, French and Irish, and instrumental jigs and reels played on whistle, classical and Irish flute, violin, guitar, bass and bodhrán or cajón. The production of the Rí Ra group combines Irish traditional and instrumental compositions, slightly spiced with funky confessions and jazz winnings. The band does not strictly adhere to the harmony and standard practices of Irish traditional music, and thanks to that, its music is open to a wide audience. At Celtic Night 2022, Rí-Ra will perform with the excellent Dutch singer and instrumentalist Loes van Schaijk.

Line up of the band:
Loes van Schaijk – Vocal, guitar, doublebass
Daniela Vránová – flutes, whistles
Linda Jarošová – fiddle
Michal Rudolf Cádra – guitar
Pavel Brejcha – bodhrán
David Ryšánek – baskguitar
