Seven men around a table create wonderful harmonies

A group of Irish music enthusiasts have created a series of hugely popular videos with their wonderful vocal harmonies of traditional folk tunes.

Coda is the name of the seven man group from Mayo. They all have different musical backgrounds across a variety of genres and it is this diversity that has enabled them to find their own unique sound.Coda singing the Briar and the Rose

The Briar & The Rose

This video of shows that you don’t need expensive recording studios or complex sound systems to create a great sound – just seven men, two bottles of wine and a table!

Conall Ó Domhnaill, Mike Cannon, Leonard Kelly, Steve Bryant, Alan Drumm, Declan Askin and Brian Lennon were all involved in classical choral singing.

They decided to try something different and began singing as a group, and letting their varied skills and backgrounds influence their sound.

They cover all genres of music from traditional Irish folk tunes to timeless pop classics from bands such as the Beatles. Sometimes they perform a capella, and sometimes with musical accompaniment from guitars, mandolins, banjos, flutes, low whistles and harmonicas.

The broad musical background of the seven members mean they can intuitively create great harmonies and sounds for each song.
