STOCKTON'S WING AMONGST FRIENDS - A CELEBRATION
Stockton’s Wing began their musical odyssey in the town of Ennis sometime in 1977, taking their name from the Bruce Springsteen song ‘Backstreets’. The band signed a deal with Tara Records after winning the Trad section of a music contest in Limerick. A young group called U2 won the rock section. The band’s first album, produced by PJ Curtis, received rave reviews from national and international press. Many more raves and triumphs would follow. Far too many to recount here. This is a group of musicians unrivalled in both virtuosity and passion. The music of Stockton's Wing has evolved into an exciting blend of traditional and contemporary Irish music and song, performed with power and precision by some of the finest players in Ireland. For TradFest 2020 they will be joined by a constellation of talented friends, including Ralph McTell, The Henry Girls, Leslie Dowdall, Tara Breen, Phelim Drew and many, many more. This promises to be a celebration for the ages!
