A warm welcome from Diaspora - Dia daoibh a chairde!
We have been described as a long established “feel good” Irish Band, which celebrates the music and traditions of the historic Irish Diaspora and entertains with an eclectic mix of Folk and other influences - listen to our music, read about us, judge for yourselves!
We had a memorable couple of gigs this month playing at Woodstock and Glastonbury. Great to be back on the road again. Thanks to all who booked us and came along and supported us.
We return to Eli's on 28th our last open mic session before our summer break during August when some of us are doing a mini gig on 13th August for a charity . Back in September.
We've provisionally been booked to play on St Patricks 17th March 2017 at Firehouse Somerset (previously called The Old Forge) in Curry Rivel so why not pop in and see this newly refurbished establishment.
We we're told by ill informed people that they are sorry that Diaspora is disbanding. Don't worry - we have absolutely no intention of disbanding.
Robert is living near Malvern and remains very much part of the band. He travels to rehearsals and gigs and is still running the band's website, on whih note sends apologies for the recent glitch which led to us going off air for a while - thanks to Rana Rapida Design for sorting it out!
And then there's Eli's - this is where we shall be continuing to hold our Open Night every last Thursday of the month, and Robert aims to make these too.
So keep calm and carry on listening to the great Irish sound of Diaspora.
