Milwaukee Irish band Áthas lights the dance floor on fire with a combination of traditional and newly composed Irish dance tunes. Fierce fiddle, driving bodhrán, and funky guitar riffs come together to lift listeners' feet, drinks, and spirits.
The band found each other and their voice as an ensemble while playing in Irish sessions around Milwaukee throughout 2005. Spending their time between tunes laughing and joking inspired them to make music together and their name, which is the Irish word for joy and happiness.
Heather Lewin: fiddle and vocals
Amy Richter: bodhrán and percussion
Jeff Ksiazek: guitar, bouzouki, tin whistle
