“Come here” for Irish celebration


Medici’s is once again both honoured and pleased to present the Okanagan Valley’s concert event of the season. On Thursday March 19th the fantastic Irish Band, Goitse (pronounced gwit-cha) takes to our stage — barely on the heels of St. Patrick’s Day!

Goitse is an informal Gaelic Irish greeting meaning ‘come here’, and come here you had better. This red hot traditional Irish band is finishing off their North American tour by playing their way across Canada before heading for home. We talked our way into a concert here at Medici’s.

Forged in the creative crucible of Limerick University’s Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, the quintet have graduated with a musical maturity worthy of the greatest. They are one of the most sought after bands among connoisseurs of Irish Traditional music cross the globe. The band has skyrocketed to the forefront of the traditional Irish music scene.

Their distinctive sound lies in the quality of their own compositions interspersed with traditional tunes from Ireland and abroad. Laying the foundations for their music are World and All-Ireland bodhrán champion Colm Phelan. The fine guitar work of Conal O’Kane. The sweet, charismatic voice and fiddle playing of Áine McGeeney. Multi-award-winning banjo and mandolin virtuoso James Harvey and piano/piano accordionist, Tadhg ÓMeachair.. Lace up your dancing shoes and get ready for a night of wonderful music and fast paced fun with Goitse.

We have planned seating and limited tickets available at $40 / person. Medici’s is at 522 Fairview Road in Oliver (250-498-2228) We will open our doors at 6:30 and Goitse will take to the stage at 7:30. We are licensed! This will be one for the ages; do not miss this!
