Séamus and Mícheál Barcelo are taking their band to Griffeen Park as part of the Ruaille Buaille celebrations 2023. The brothers had been tinkering with a wide range of instruments and musical genres until they fell in love with the French and Afro-Caribbean sounds of South West Louisiana. While there musical journey started as a game in 2015 by playing on the road in their townland while slowly sharing some of their performance on social media, since then they have shared their own heartful compositions and their festival spirit with performances at a wide range of festivals in Ireland, the UK and Mallorca.
With their self-penned songs and infectious genre blend of zydeco, rhythm and blues, soul and funk, the Barcelo Brothers were ambassadors for Cruinniú no nÓg 2022 and this Galway duo make enthusiastic dancers out of just about anybody, old or young.
Ruaille Buaille is delighted to welcome The Barcelo Brothers to bring this year’s festival to a close.
