Highlights include a 30,000-capacity stadium concert in Brittany, along with performances at Penang World Music Festival in Malaysia, Edmonton Folk Festival in Canada, Harare International Festival of the Arts in Zimbabwe, and Rainforest World Music Festival in Borneo.

In 2014, the band performed to 40,000 people during an extensive seven-week tour of Japan and Taiwan and has actively toured the United States since 2001. May 2022 saw the release of the band’s new album on the Gael Linn label, Coiscéim Coliligh, featuring an exciting vocal collaboration between Séamus Begley and Hollywood actor and singer John C.
