Contemporary Irish Traditional Music

Torcán is a New-Wave Trad band from Ireland led by Jason Turk, three-time medalist at the prestigious All Ireland Fleadh Cheoil. Joined by Robin Turk, Seán Murphy and Brian Leach from Co. Cork, these veteran multi-instrumentalist create an energetic and complex sound from the piano accordion, whistle, fiddle, electric bass, guitar, bodhrán and the occasional banjo.

"They play an exciting brand of Traditional Irish Music, arranged with great flair but always respecting the roots and origin of the music.” - Seán Ó Sé, Traditional Irish singing legend. Influenced by artists such as Flook, Michael McGoldrick, Niall Vallely and the Esbjorn Svensson Trio, Torcán expands upon traditional Irish music structures by incorporating rhythms and melodies inspired by other folk; Cajun, Scandinavian, classical, dance, and rock genres.


Torcán’s music speaks to a diverse range of audiences; they have accompanied Sing Out Loud!, a high energy variety show featuring 1,500+ children at the Cork Opera House, to IMRO TradFest Showcase, to a performance in front of thousands at Turkey's historic Karagoz Folk Dance Festival.
