Album of the Year - 2010

Poitin

Bofiguifluki


"In celebration of St. Patrick's Day, Celtic Radio is announcing the 2010 Celtic Radio Album of the Year. They are from the Czech Republic and they play Celtic Music in all of its shapes and forms. From haunting Breton melodies to raunchy traditional Irish songs. They have performed at festivals across Europe, in Italy, France, Poland, Germany and of course - the Czech Republic.

They are a band that has been distilling and maturing since the mid-nineties, not only a journey through different Celtic genres, but a journey reflecting the development of the band over the years: discovery, experimentation, exuberance and innovation are a few words to describe the 2010 Celtic Radio Album of the year winners called Poitin!

Bofiguifluki, is a master piece of traditional Celtic music that is a breathless and enchanting collection of intricate, elegant and downright foot stomping Celtic music! Containing a wide range of Celtic music from Calton Weaver, Paddy's Polas, Four Drunken Maidens to the foot stomping Emily. Our Celtic Radio Album of the Year award acknowledges musicians who have made exceptional contributions to the genre of Celtic Music. By every means possible, Poitin has excelled in providing an album that meets every criteria of this prestigious and notable award. We have really enjoyed this talented group from the Czech Republic and aside from being a great group of people, Poitin shows a perfection of music and instrument that will have you listening to these tracks over and over. Beautiful arrangements and masterful talent!

Congratulations to the 2010 Celtic Radio Album of Year award for Poitin's Bofiguifluki. A Beautiful engraved Celtic Radio award is being created by our local jeweler and will be mailed to Poitin with compliments from our many Celtic Radio supporters that make this award possible! Slainte! - Celtic Radio Music Awards Committee."
