Legendary Irish Folk Band Stockton’s Wing will return to glór on Sunday 2nd June 2024 to celebrate 50 years of Fleadh Nua in Ennis.
Stockton’s Wing is a collective of musicians hosted by founding members Mike Hanrahan and Paul Roche. For the past number of years they have been joined by fiddler extraordinaire Tara Breen, Banjo and mandolin Karol Lynch and guitarist Paul McSherry. More recently, Stephen Byrne on percussion has been added to the line-up. They are highly respected for their innovation, musicianship, and creativity. Their performances are always exciting.
Their sound is unique, often described as electric and eclectic, steeped in the Clare tradition yet forever stretching beyond the boundaries of Irish music. Their song Beautiful Affair was voted into RTE radio top 75 Irish songs of all time.
