Since issuing their superb Songs of The Hollow album in 2017, Cua have gone on to become a band that has gathered in more praise than most from all the best sections of the media.

Reviewing them at AmericanaUK, top writer Jeremy Searle said: This Irish trio stands right at the forefront of contemporary cutting-edge folk and even that description sells it a little short.

Issuing a similar judgement for Acoustic magazine, Julian Piper had this to say: At its finest, music should confound and amaze the listener, and this trio from Ireland have the luck and the ability to be one of those outfits who can pull this off.

Folkwords said, rightly: Unlike anything else.

They caused a sensation when they attracted a capacity crowd to their Celtic Connections show in Glasgow, just before the pandemic struck. It was the first event on the entire programme to become sold-out.

If any confirmation of their popularity was needed, that came in 2021 when they issued a promo video that featured the track, Kings and Queens from their debut album. In the space of five days, it had been viewed more than ten thousand times.

Folk Radio UK said: If cua are not on your radar, then they should be.
