Irish Traditional Music
Sult is an Irish music trio that plays a lively mix of traditional tunes and folk songs. Their name “Sult” – the Irish word for “enjoyment” – alludes to the band’s early days when members would meet up at each other’s homes for the pure joy of playing together (while downing cups of Irish breakfast tea!). Formed in 2017, Sult plays music that originates from the countries of Kerry, Limerick and Cork in Southen Ireland. The group is made up of Fionán O’Loingsigh (flute, whistles and vocals), Gerry Murphy (guitar, bouzouki and vocals) and Sile Murphy (concertina and vocals). Known for its energetic live performances, Sult cites folk musicians Andy Irvine, Paul Brady, Conal O’Gráda and Michael O’Raghallaigh among other Irish musical legends as its main influences.
