Riastradh perform a ditty in Emmett's, Ballina on December 30th 2009. This video was created by Daniel Hickey and John Breslin.
Riastradh hail from the outer west coast of Ireland performing the hits of what it's like to live there. Wild scian waving perfumed in harm. Avalanches are not a regular occurrence in the west and neither are we. We write music to dance to,but only if you have ten peg legs. Once descibed as "day ghosht" by himself, the sound omitted by Riastradh left wings around the air only to plunge directly in the brain to manifest itself as music in the listener.
Three men are responsible for Riastradh and three things are responsible for Riastradh.
The true form of secrecy is the only lie we admit to telling the truth to. The detective of Dublin used to ask us questions, we answered his questions in the true form of secrecy. This is why we are here today.
This concludes the history and reason behind Riastradh.
