The Carty Sisters - C

The Carty Sisters, Saoirse, Naoise and Ciara, are musicians, song writers and vocalist, from Wexford that share a passion for composing and creating their own music. The girls released their debut EP “COGAR” in October 2015; it was produced and mentored under the watchful eye of KÍLA front man, Rónán Ó Snódaigh, in Cong, Co. Mayo

It’s always nice to work with gifted musicians but these girls are gifted and have a zest for the music.

In short, They Rock!” (Rónán Ó Snódaigh , KÍLA)

Not known for taking it easy, the girls recently headlined the “Marstal Irish Festival” in Denmark , sharing the stage with none other than Johnny Logan, where they delighted audiences with their beautiful haunting ballad “ISLAND” (commemorative 1916 song),which gained 3rd place in the all-Ireland GAA SCÓR COMPITION, their instrumental “REFLECTIONS” and contemporary sweet songs “STARS” and “ Rains”.

Being passionate about the Irish language, the girls have also recorded three Irish Songs “GEALLAIM”  “TÚS LE TROID” and “AG FÁS”, with “AG FÁS” having being shortlisted and performed in the National Pan Celtic Song Contest 2016.

The girls are always very excited to work alongside producer Ollie Hennessy writing, composing and creating a collection of original songs and tunes, some of which they have performed at the “follow me up to Carlow ” concerts.

In addition to enthralling TV and radio audiences on TG4, RTE Radio with Sean O Rourke, Radio na Gaeltachta with Sinead ar Maidin, the sisters’ skilled musicianship has led to them to appear at such prestigious events as the Aero Irish festival in Marstal Copenhagen, Kilkenny and Templebar Tradfests 2015 & 2016, Spiegeltent Tent, Follow me up to Carlow ,The Milford Room Sessions and The Big Squeeze.

They have also performed in the Watergate Kilkenny as part of the Polish Ireland Festival, where they met with representatives from the Polish Embassy. They have regularly gigged in the infamous John Cleere’s theatre pub Monday night sessions in Kilkenny.

They were also invited to share stages in a special guest capacity with some illustrious Irish performers including KÍLA, Sharon Shannon, Johnny Logan, Moxie, Seán Keane,The Kilkennys, Louise Morrissey, Trudy Lawlor Johnny Moynihan as well as international soloists such as Eddi Reader, Nashville singer-songwriters Charlie Roth and Melissa Greener.

 

With a distinctive edge the girls are paving a formidable path for themselves on the national music scene and it is surely just a matter of time before they get the major breakthrough their inherent talent fully deserves. Hearing the Carty Sisters live it’s incredible to think they’ve only been performing in public for two years;

“Their inherent talent continues to astound people who witness them perform”

(Brendan Keane, New Ross Echo)
