Nuada are Ferris Jay and Sam Burke.

Based near Carrigallen, they play both early and contemporary music across Ireland and the UK.

Nuada draw on a repertoire that spans more than a thousand years of popular music, from the Viking Age to the modern day using a mesmerising variety of instruments (Lyre, Crumhorn, Bagpipes Dulcimer, Lute and many more.)

They are playing as part of the launch of a Commemorative Booklet of Carrick-on-Shannon 400 ‘Twin Traditions Gael and Planter.’

The booklet has an accumulation of local documented history focusing on Carrick and Enniskillen.
