COSÁN - new irish music

The Band

Cosán – are four young, enthusiastic musicians from all over Germany who set out to combine the excitement and leisure of their “20-something generation” with high class musicianship and experience in the Irish music field. Traditional songs and tunes, predominantly hailing from Ireland with a pinch of other traditions – Swedish, Scottish and some from further afield - blend in with contemporary song-writing and their own compositions. Michaela Grüß, Barbara Hintermeier, Steffen Gabriel and Brian Haitz all have considerable experience touring and recording on the professional Irish music circus in Germany and Europe with various bands (e.g. Trasnú, Nua, More Maids, Blue, Choonz and more). An evening with Cosán promises to attend to every expectation you may have of Irish music, covering ten different instruments and up to four-part vocal arrangements – it’s entertaining, joyful and sometimes a bit wild!
