Bana Rua are a 5 piece vocal harmony and folk group from Waterford City. Their style and influences range from Irish folk and traditional to contemporary barbershop and acapella, American old time and country to modern day classics.

Enjoy the Sea shanty, sung to accompany rhythmical labour aboard large merchant sailing vessels had roots in lore and legend.

The “maritime work song” enjoyed by sailors far and near The Imagine Festival will take the opportunity to raise a toast to our Suir Estuary, all who sailed and sang about her.
