Cleia

Cleia

Cleia sprung out of the thriving Vancouver Irish session scene of the early noughties. Ever hard to pin down genre-wise, their delight was always to mix up the techniques and instrumentation of the Irish tradition with the songs and tunes they were bringing in from other styles, and the increasingly elaborate songs and tunes they were composing themselves. It's been about ten years since Cleia were last at Mission and they are delighted to have been invited back for what will be a one-off reunion featuring Andy Hillhouse, Karla Mundy, Keona Hammond, and Neil Hammond.
