Goitse
Kentucky Performing Arts 

Goitse is a popular and award-winning quintet forged in the creative crucible of Limerick’s Irish World Academy. Goitse (Go-wit-cha) chose its name from the informal Gaelic Irish greeting meaning ‘come here.’ Named Live Ireland’s “Traditional Group of the Year,” Chicago Irish American News’ “Group of the Year,” as well as winning the prestigious “Freiburger International Leiter 2016” award in Germany, Goitse has become a leader of a new generation of traditional Irish ensembles.

The group’s distinctive sound lies in the quality of their own compositions interspersed with traditional tunes from the countryside of Ireland and abroad.

Goitse makes what Irish Music Magazine calls “Music that’s brimming with energy and creative zeal.”

Arrival From Sweden: A Tribute to Abba

Louisville Orchestra

ABBA (which started in 1971 and ended as a group in ‘82), is the greatest pop group of all, only compared with Elvis and the Beatles. Sweden’s biggest music export to date, and with almost 400 million records sold, both the stage musical (which debuted on Broadway in 2001), and the 2008 movie Mamma Mia! (based on the group’s music), became instant worldwide sensations.

Arrival from Sweden was founded in 1995 in Gothenburg, Sweden, and very soon became one of the world’s best ticket selling ABBA show bands. Since its start in 1995 the band has toured in close to 60 countries, played with almost 70 symphony orchestras all over the world, and is considered the absolute best and most authentic ABBA show there is.

Conducted by Bob Bernhardt of the Louisville Orchestra.

 “From their sound to the aesthetics, the musicians replicated ABBA so well, it felt like we had traveled back in time to see the original supergroup. The live music sounded as good, if not better than the records”. —Umgas Magazine, The Swedish-American Magazine, 2019.
