Goitse

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, we thought it only appropriate today to feature the Irish band, Goitse - a name which means “Come Here” in Irish.

We recorded them on stage recently at the ICHC – the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center on Wisconsin Avenue.  The five-piece group was born at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance in Limerick, Ireland, a few years back.

They won fans at last year’s Irish Fest, and have recently returned from an extended tour of China.
