blending songs in English and Irish with traditional
and newly composed dance tunes
Together since 2013, Irish traditional band Gatehouse boast an exciting lineup with singer Rachel Garvey, Jacinta McEvoy on guitar and concertina, John McEvoy on fiddle and mandolin and John Wynne on flute and whistles.
No strangers to the Irish music scene, Gatehouse’s music reflects their strong links with the west of Ireland, weaving infectious rhythms with soothing vocals. The two Johns go back a long way and their strong fiddle and flute partnership coupled with Rachel’s captivating singing and Jacinta’s sensitive guitar playing give Gatehouse an uplifting and uniquely lyrical sound.
Following the release of their highly acclaimed debut album, Tús Nua in 2016, the band have had a busy schedule performing throughout Ireland and Europe.
With their second recording ’Heather Down the Moor’ in 2019, Gatehouse have established their reputation for tasteful interpretation of traditional songs and exciting instrumentals.
