Manchester Folk Festival 2022/ Moxie

Moxie are an Alternative Folk band emerging from traditional Irish music roots. The band have travelled the world including a state visit to Vietnam, festivals and tours through the US, Canada, Australia and Europe.

They released their second album in September 2021, ‘The Dawn of Motion’ described as a timeless body of work. With this album release, Moxie take a new direction driven by vibrant songs and avant-garde genres. This new venture has been perceived as “a sound that reflects the dazzling diversity of Ireland in 2021” by Hot Press Magazine and as “a swirling, almost cinematic sweep through the global electronic and acoustic landscape” by The Irish News.

Moxie were nominated for the 2021 RTÉ Folk Awards as Best Folk Group amongst great artists such as Villagers, Ye Vagabonds, The Whileaways and spent the month of October performing and representing Ireland at the World Expo 2020.

Moxie’s signature sound epitomises Irish tradition in the 21st century. Their music is a colourful illustration of the society we live in today.
