What’s old – traditional Irish music – becomes timeless in the hands of Providence, a Dublin-based quintet that brings a passion for authenticity to its first Appleseed Recordings release, A Fig for a Kiss. With material drawn from more than three centuries and skills honed through years of apprenticeship in other groups, the members of Providence combine fresh energy and a historical approach to a genre too frequently modernized.

“Over the last few years, a lot of bands who are billed as ‘Irish traditional bands’ are hardly playing a traditional repertoire at all,” explains Joan McDermott, lead singer for Providence. “They are composing new tunes, playing songs from many other cultures, and they often play at a horrendous speed. We wanted to get back to the basics and play good, honest-to-God, straight traditional music and, hopefully, that’s what we do.”
