Moxie have been invited on a Spring tour of Australia, by Gaynor Crawford, taking with them videographer Peter Clyne (Outer Cells Media) to document the tour and create ‘Chasing Moxie #2’. It will be Moxie's debut tour and launch of their 'Planted' album in Australia.

“A high energy cocktail that defies easy categorization…accordion trad meets banjo bluegrass with a contemporary rhythm section that takes many a jubilant left turn. This is highly charged 21st Century Irish music.” Carl Corcoran, RTÉ

When 5 young Irish musicians hibernate for two weeks to explore their music by the ever changing sky and the rhythmic movements and sounds of Ireland's west coast Atlantic sea you get Moxie, a group who are inspiring audiences with their new palette of 21st century Irish music. The band includes Cillian Doheny (tenor banjo/steel string guitar), Jos Kelly (button accordion/keyboard), Darren Roche (button accordion), Ted Kelly (tenor banjo) and Paddy Hazelton (percussion). Their music has a solid traditional backbone. Jazz, rock, bluegrass and world music rhythms and harmonies are creatively structured around this base treating the listener to layers of rich and intricate sounds as the band deliver a punchy programme of both their own compositions and old tunes with a new emerald vibe.
