Dannsair has achieved a depth and clarity in Irish music few
expect from these centuries-old tunes. By combining jazz,
classical and traditional Irish sensibilities they push the
envelope of the sound into completely new territory.
The various members of Dannsair have been performing together on
and off for seven years. Their styles are incredibly well
suited to each other with the emotional Irish melodies melding
into jazzy undertones, classical phrasing and danceable rhythms.
arrangements, emotional fiddle & flute playing along with
the percussion and bass bring a complete and essential sound
to this traditional folk music.
Currently performing Thursdays at Dargan’s
Irish Pub in Santa Barbara,
Dannsair draws an eclectic following interested in traditional,
world and Irish music.
