Mary Barrett and Paul Wood have been playing Irish music together for delighted audiences since 2001. What started as a church musician connection evolved into an Irish music collaboration after discovering a shared love for the land and the music. Sharing common roots in County Kerry, Ireland, the name BANNA is taken from a beloved beach (Banna Strand) in the region. Comprised of a beautiful blending of rich voices, guitar and some lively electronic background accompaniment to get your feet a’tappin’, BANNA’s music will transport you to places both majestic and magical. BANNA takes you the distance from such hauntingly lovely ballads as “Wild Mountain Thyme” to rollicking, Irish sing-a-longs such as “Whiskey in the Jar”.
