Méabh Ní Bheaglaoich (accordion,vocals), Nicole Ní Dhubhshláine (concertina, flute), Niamh Varian-Barry (fiddle, viola, vocals), and Kyle Macaulay (guitar, bouzouki) came together in early 2023 toform CUAS, a collective that performs and celebrates the wild and diverse musical traditions of WestKerry. Inspired by the emotive songs and the vibrant dance traditions of the area, the grouppositions the intrinsic link between listener and performer at the heart of the performance.

CUAS will realise this connection as they release their debut album in summer 2024 which was recorded in front of a live audience in Corca Dhuibhne. Invigorating polkas and slides, thoughtful new compositions, and native songs abound in this meeting of four of Ireland’s most promising young musicians.
