Hard-Driving Traditional Celtic Music
Inspired and founded in 2003 by Marta Quinn, Cahersiveen features a repertoire ranging from simple old Irish songs and American folk classics to hard-driving, edgy, Scottish and Irish jigs and reels, performed by classically trained musicians.
The band takes its name from the town of Cahersiveen. Capital of the Iveragh Peninsula and located along the Ring of Kerry in County Kerry, Ireland, Cahersiveen lies beside the Atlantic Ocean, surrounded by rivers, lakes, mountains and ancient archaeological sites.
Upon invitation, the band performed at the annual 2006 international Festival for Music and the Arts in Ireland, and recorded its first CD thereafter. The band’s second CD was released for sale in March 2014, and is available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon, and CDBaby. In April 2018, Cahersiveen performed nationally at The Grand Theater in Keokuk, Iowa. Regional performance venues include the Corin Courtyard at the Mondavi Center, UC Davis, Sierra College, Sacramento’s Second Saturday Art Walk, Patrick Mulvaney’s St. Patrick’s Day Pig Roast, Grass Valley’s Renaissance Fair, local pubs, country clubs, churches, private fundraising events and parties. Cahersiveen performs regularly on the Delta King in Old Sacramento and in Woodland at Father Paddy's Irish Public House. Cahersiveen ranks among the top Celtic bands in Northern California.
