I Gens d'Ys born in 1993. It was when some friends decided to form a group dance inspired by the traditions of Brittany, Scottish and Irish in particular. After more than a decade, the Gens d'Ys have grown thanks to the contribution of new information, participation in a training program taught by professional teachers and especially thanks to the teachings of Sinead Venables, a former world champion of Irish dancing. Their repertoire, long limited mainly to folk art and folk dances, are open to new Irish-style brought to the attention of the general public by the shows Riverdance and Lord of the Dance.
The Birkin Tree during their long career they have done more than a thousand concerts in Italy and Europe and are the only Italian band - and one of the few in the world - to perform regularly in Ireland (Three tours, performances by individual musicians, the recording of their concert by the Irish Radio and Television). They accompanied their tour in Italy in the renowned piper Liam O'Flynn, the duo violin / guitar Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill, the famous singer Niamh Parsons, and have assets of three recordings-Continental Reel (1996), A Cheap Present (1999), and 3 (three) of 2003 - and dozens of compilations.

The Morrigan's Wake: The group was founded in the summer of 1981 by proposing a first repertoire of Breton dances and ballads of the Irish resistance, gradually expanding the focus on the dance music of Scotland, Wales and Ireland itself.

It 'just the union of original arrangements and popular music to score a second proposal phase of the group that produced the second album in 1994, Dagda, a tribute to the great repertoire of Scots-Irish ballads and dances, accompanied by some original compositions.
And after the deepening of the repertoire of Celtic area in Europe, the gaze is turned today, with the new album Sunrise Atlantic, even to the music tracks left by the Irish and Scottish emigration across the ocean.
Jigs, reels, polkas and hornpipes are the dances that Morrigan's Wake performs live, from which arises a show that involves the audience to dance and fun, but without neglecting moments "listening", offering songs and ballads of traditional epic poetry of the British Isles.
