Since 2014, The Curious Bards has united five musicians, who love Gaelic and Celtic traditional music. These five musicians had an early music education and have studied in prestigious institutions in Lyon, Paris and Basel. Their musical paths have integrated traditional Irish and Scottish practice for many years.

The ensemble claims to offer an innovative and creative insight to this repertoire guided by extensive research. They are ‘bards’ of modern times, eager to discover and expand their knowledge. This is their first album.
