FullSet are one of Ireland’s most accomplished and sought-after bands in Irish Traditional Music today. This young and exciting group creates a sound that is full of energy & innovation, whilst all the time remaining true to their traditional roots.
“FullSet was THE breakout band at the Irish Fair of Minnesota.Their energy was infectious and the crowd response was incredible. They were able to connect to all ages, from Mohawked teenagers, to their grandparents. I had heard good things about them, but the musicianship, and stage presence playing live exceeded every expectation I had.” – Mike Wiley, Vice Chair/Entertainment Director of Irish Fair of Minnesota 2013
FullSet garnered much critical acclaim in recent years, even being compared to super groups such as Danú & Altan by respected Irish Music Magazine. Their meteoric rise in the music world was given a massive boost in 2011 when they were honoured by being announced as the winners of the RTÉ/RAAP Breakthrough Annual Music Bursary Award. FullSet subsequently went on to receive the “Best New Group Award” from well-respected Irish American News and were also named “Best Newcomer” in Bill Margeson’s Live Ireland Awards in 2012.
Following the tremendous success of their debut album “Notes At Liberty”, the group’s profile was further raised with the release of their follow up title, “Notes After Dark” in 2013. Irish Music Magazine described it as having “so many good tracks, so much energy, a band in full control and having such fun yet well able to bring things down to a tearful pause”. “Notes After Dark” was also named Album of the Year in 2013 by US radio programme “Celtic Connections”. Most recently FullSet was awarded “Top Traditional Group” by the Irish Music Association.
