With her four-piece band, which includes the virtuoso mandolin/bouzouki player Declan Corey, Paul O'Driscoll on double bass, and the latest addition to the group, guitarist/singer Tommy Carew, Josephine has successfully integrated her individual style and sound to an equally individual group sound and style.

PJ Curtis, record producer/author and RTE 1, Lyric FM radio presenter has this to say of her band:

"Over the last two years Josephine Marsh and her band have established themselves as one of the most exciting traditional ensembles around. As a performing unit they play Irish traditional music with great passion, purity of style and stunning virtuosity. As far as I'm concerned this truly a band with future with and it's only a matter of time before their praises will be sung wherever good traditional, world or acoustic music is played and appreciated."

Josephine's solo album has also been re-released world-wide in March 2000 and appears under the Tara Music Label. This label is also responsible for such artists as Davy Spillane, Christy Moore, Clannad, Stockton's Wing and Liam O'Flynn, etc.

This is both group and individual traditional music delivered at its very best: spirited, melodic, dynamic. A group to watch and listen to!
