G Spota na Féile

011Bhí oíche cheoil den chéad scoth againn le G Spota Bhéal Feirste. Club024 míosúil a dtagann le chéile a ghníomhaíonn chun athghabháil na Gaeilge a thiomáint agus todhchaí na teanga a chinntiú trí chosmhuintir na tíre. Bhí Bréag agus J.J Ó’Dochartaigh ag seinm le seit dj ina dhiaidh. Is iad Bréag banna a tháinig le chéile le hairgead a bhailiú ar son Gaelscoileanna, tá Bréag anois ar cheann de na bannaí is éagsúlaí agus is nualaí dá bhfuil ann. Tá lucht leanúna dílis bainte amach ag Bréag thar 043na blianta, banna ar éirigh leo an Ghaeilge a thabhairt chuig an stáitse domhanda lena mheascán ceoil de Ska, Reggae, Raic agus Ceol Domhanda. Le fiche bliain anuas, tá Bréag i ndiaidh ardán a roinnt le ceoltóirí móra ar nós The Wailers, Shane McGowan, Mana Negro (Manu Chao), The Alabama 3, Sly & Robbie, Liam062 Ó Maonlaí, The Rubber Bandits, John Spillane agus Kíla.

Tá iomrá ar Bréag anois mar ghrúpa a thugann éispearas ceoil ar leith don éisteoir, agus don damhsóir, a chuireann agus a choinníonn na cosa ag bogadaí.
