COSCÁN is a four piece Trad / Contemporary Folk band based in Slane, Co. Meath, Ireland. We play an exciting style of world music and song incorporating contemporary music and Traditional music from Scotland, Galicia and South America with emphasis on our root music - Traditional Irish Music.
Having performed at various festivals and venues throughout Ireland e.g. Fiddler's Green Festival in Rostrevor, Co. Down, Tara Solstice Festival, Le Cheíle Festival and the National Concert Hall to name but a few, we have supported some well known bands such as The Dubliners, Kíla and Four Men & a Dog. COSCÁN has also performed live on several Irish radio shows e.g. Áine Hensey's The Late Session, Kieran Hanrahan's Céilí House, Ryan Tubridy's The Tubridy Show and the RTÉ TV documentary covering the Autumn Equinox at Loughcrew in Co. Meath.
This year we will perform at some well known festivals throughout Ireland, such as: Celtic Fusion International Festival, Fiddlers Green International Festival, Ballyshannon Folk Festival and on the main stage at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann as well as numerous lesser known festivals and fairs.
In August '07 COSCÁN was invited to perform at Festival Interceltique de Lorient, France (the largest Celtic music festival in the world attracting some 850,000 visitors annually). At this festival we performed 5 concerts, the first supporting The Dubliners and sharing the same billing as Sharon Shannon, Solás, Cappercaille as well as supporting the leading Spanish group Tejédor.
