The Blackwater Céilí Band from Clogher Valley in County Tyrone formed in February 2015 with musicians from Tyrone, Monaghan, Down and Leitrim. They have become a well known and established band in the area and further afield. The band play at various concerts, fleadhanna and céilís. Their music is firmly grounded in the Ulster tradition, and they strive to produce a lively and rhythmical style of céilí band music which is suitable for dancers & listeners alike.
The Band competed every year at All Ireland level until 2018, when they made history and became the first Céilí Band from County Tyrone to be crowned All Ireland Senior Céilí Band champions at the Fleadh in Drogheda. This success has resulted in many media appearances for the Band including two live TV performances on TG4’s Fleadh TV, RTÉ’s Fleadh Cheoil programme and a special appearance on RTÉ’s Up For The Match in September 2018. Other memorable performances include a RTÉ Radio One’s Céilí House, and a live performance to nearly six hundred family members, friends and supporters at their homecoming in the Valley Hotel, Fivemiletown
Now join them live at the Rainbow Ballroom
