Doolin' - Circus Boy

Doolin' is a diverse Celtic ensemble from France whose mastery of traditional Irish music has gained them an international audience. Doolin' combines traditional and modern Celtic traditions with parts of French folk and rock music, and is named after an Irish fishing village. Since their inception in 2005, they have released three studio albums as well as the live CD Live in Lorient in 2013.

The band consists of brothers Nicolas Besse (guitar) and Wilfried Besse (vocals, accordion) and their cousin Sébastien Saunié (bass), along with Guilhem Cavaillé (fiddle) and brothers Jacob (whistles) and Josselin Fournel (bodhran). 

This is their new single, called Circus Boy. The song has meaningful lyrics, a catchy chorus, a classy arrangement and is amazingly performed by the band, both vocally and instrumentally. Give it a go by clicking on the YouTube player below (for the official video, really well made as well) and don't forget to follow the band on social media.
