Following a successful European Christmas tour, 3 on the Bund are returning to Germany, this time on their first solo tour.

The five-piece band hail from three corners of Ireland as well as Germany, their varied musical backgrounds contributing to their diverse sound. Traditional Irish folk music lies at the heart of what they do. Their complex, layered arrangements consist of both traditional pieces and their own new compositions. From traditional heart-breaking ballads to energetic modern tunes, 3 on the Bund are breathing fresh new life into an ancient music tradition.

April 2024 will see 3 on the Bund embark on an eleven-day tour of Germany, sharing their music with new audiences, allowing people to experience Ireland’s rich modern musical heritage up close and personal.

Tour dates include:

13.04.24 Lindenhalle, Ehingen an der Donau

14.04.24 Filderhalle, Leinfelden-Echterdingen

19.04.24 Salzlandtheater, Staßfurt

20.04.24 Kulturfenster, Heidelberg

21.04.24 Alternatives Zentrum, Rödermark

21.04.24 Volker Rebel KKB, Offenbach am Main

3 on the Bund are a young, up-and-coming Irish traditional music band from Ireland. Founded in 2019, they came together through the Irish World Academy at the University of Limerick and “rapidly went from unknown to hot property” (Folk World).

The band’s five members (Ella McGrory – piano, Rebecca McCarthy-Kent – fiddle, Susan Coleman – concertina and vocals, Seán Kelliher – guitar, Simon Pfisterer – uilleann pipes and flute) are from varied musical backgrounds which contributes to their diverse sound. As individuals, all are award-winning and accomplished performers. As a group, they have travelled to Beijing, Shanghai, the UK, the US, Switzerland, Germany, and several other countries across Europe.

Impressively managing to record, produce, and release their debut album Frenzy during the Covid-19 pandemic, they received widespread recognition: “a superb debut from a spanking-fresh band with infinite potential!” (Anita Lock, Irish Music Magazine).

Over the past two years, 3 on the Bund have been fast establishing a name for themselves within the Irish music scene in Europe. In April 2022, 3 on the Bund headlined the Irish Heartbeat Festival tour, a month-long tour across Germany and Switzerland. In 2023, they performed to sold-out crowds at Germany’s Rheingau Musik Festival and Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, and headlined the 26th Guinness Irish Christmas tour across Austria.

2024 is also shaping up to be a big year for 3 on the Bund, with several tours booked across the continent including headlining the six-week long Irish Folk Festival tour of Germany. The band are also currently working on their second album, due to be released in 2024.
