Hold on to your seats, it’s MOXIE! MOXIE are an innovative, highly charged, and irresistible young band at the forefront of new traditional music.
MOXIE will bring young audiences on an unforgettable musical journey. Fast becoming a festival favourite internationally, MOXIE have built a reputation for their high energy live performances, brimming with youthful vitality. With traditional music that flows from banjos, guitar, accordion, keyboard and percussion, their sound is inspired by Ireland’s untamed West Coast.

MOXIE’s performance as part of Tradoodle Festival follows an epic 3-week sold out run of performances with Prodijig, The Revolution at The Cork Opera House which received rave reviews. In August 2014 they released their debut album Planted to critical acclaim.
