An Lár is a fun-loving traditional Irish band playing fast paced tunes – jaunty hornpipes, lilting jigs and full throttle reels alternating with slower tunes – lyrical waltzes and melancholy airs, as well as singing Irish folk ballads of love and adventure. Seven musicians make up An Lár with fiddles, flutes, penny whistles, guitars, octave mandolin, tenor banjo, accordion, concertina, and bodhran. Great music for a rousing show or as background music with upbeat ambience.
