Founded in 2005 in Toulouse, Doolin’ is considered one of the most innovative groups in the Irish music scene today. The band goes beyond the borders of traditional music with its modern approach, its energy and the diversity of its influences (folk, pop-rock, jazz and funk…). Doolin’ is not only acclaimed in Ireland amongst connoisseurs of traditional music but also has a constantly growing and faithful fan base with whom they share their passion for Irish music. The energy, sensitivity, joyfulness and virtuosity of its six musicians and ability to enthuse and inspire audiences from the most intimate gigs to major festivals make Doolin’ an essential band to discover on stage! "They’re an all-French band who play Irish traditional music brilliantly." Frank McNally, The Irish Times "Irish Folk music regerenated in Toulouse by six excellent musicians respectful of the original sound and melodies, and also able to groove jigs on ultra funky rythms. The formidable Fournel’s brothers make the bodhràn and whistle the coolest instruments in the world." Anne Berthod, Télérama "Six musicians with diverse musical backgrounds and influences who interweave their talents to excite audiences everywhere." Bruno Le Gars, Le Festicelte "A unique sound: energetic and full of emotion." Gérard Viel, Trad Mag
