Killultagh is a four-piece traditional music group born out of the Tuesday night session at Clenaghan’s Pub in Aghalee, County Antrim, in the North of Ireland. The sessions have become famous with visitors from all corners of the world who come regularly to listen and join in. Killultagh’s music is a reflection of the world around it - effortlessly blending the jig and reel with the air and song.
Killultagh has taken its name from an area in County Antrim, just to the east of Lough Neagh. Killultagh literally means “The Woods of Ulster”. In the dark distant mists of history the area used to be a large oak forest, a place where the ancient kings of Ireland were crowned on a stone that still lies on the same hilltop today overlooking the Lough to the west.
Between them, the members of Killultagh have been county, provincial and indeed all Ireland champions in their various instruments. With a line up of uillean pipes, whistle, guitar, fiddle and bodhran, plus outstanding vocals, the band truly succeeds in harnessing the power and drive of the music of the North. The superb union of the pipes and the fiddle, married to the driving accompaniment of the guitar and bodhran and interlaced with rich vocals make a performance by Killultagh an unforgettable experience, for they have at their heart the fast and furious music indigenous to Ulster.
