Ar Ais Aris

Irish for “back again” it symbolizes our commitment to the music we love. For over 20 years we’ve been working our way through the Irish and American ballad tradition. Along with insightful originals you can expect nothing but great music and great humor from an Ar Ais Aris performance. With guitars, bodhrans, hammered dulcimer and accordion you’ll hear a wide range of music from some of the greatest songwriters and performers such as Christy Moore, Jimmy MacCarthy, Tommy Makem, Stan Rogers and a host of others. And, if the occasion is right we even dip into the folk/rock genre of the 60’s and 70’s with classics from Creedence Clearwater Revival, Van Morrison, and who knows else!
