Following the tremendous success of their debut album “Notes At Liberty,” FullSet is quickly becoming one of the most well-known bands in the Irish music scene today. In October 2011 they were honored as the winners of the RTÉ/RAAP Breakthrough Annual Music Bursary Award, having been shortlisted along with 12 other groups in four different categories ahead of a field of almost 800 other groups and artists. As well as this, in 2012 FullSet was honored to receive “Best New Group Award” from the well-respected Irish American News as well as “Best New Comer” in Bill Margeson’s Live Ireland Awards.
Michael Harrison on fiddle creates a distinctive sound using original and colorful techniques. Martino Vacca is an exceptional uilleann piper and employs his mastery of this instrument in all pieces arranged by FullSet. Talented musician, Janine Redmond, on button accordion maintains a rich traditional style that is becoming ever so rare in traditional music today. Eamonn Moloney on bodhrán and Andy Meaney on guitar, effortlessly blend the music together with a sensitive yet driving accompaniment section. The emotive singing style of Teresa Horgan completes the ensemble and is guaranteed to captivate audiences of every generation.
To date, FullSet has performed on some of Ireland’s most prestigious TV programs including “The Late Late Show” and TG4’s hugely popular Irish music series Geantraí. They have also performed at various festivals and venues across America and Europe including Copenhagen Irish Festival, the Festival Interceltique de Lorient, The Michigan Irish Festival and also the North Texas Irish Festival. During this time they have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in folk and world music including Moya Brennan, Fred Morrison, Lúnasa, Carlos Núnez, Andy Irvine, Donal Lunny and Beoga.
