Torcán

Torcán Logo
Torcán is a newly established instrumental trad band made up of Jason Turk, Seán Murphy, Robin Turk and Brian Leach. They play an eclectic mix of Irish Traditional music infused with hints of other musical styles like Jazz, Cajun, Scandinavian, Classical, Dance and Rock. In their short time together they've performed a great many shows. From regular live sessions in the pubs of their hometown of Cork, to gracing the stage at IMRO's 2011 TradFest Showcase, to a performance in front of thousands at Turkey's historic Karagoz Folk Dance Festival, Torcán have already begun making their mark on the Folk music scene.
