Captain A is an experimental folk band based in Letterkenny. Originally a vehicle for Eoghan Holland’s recording experiments, Captain A solidified into a lineup of guitar, double bass, harp keys and male/female dueting vocals, a pastoral, gentle psychedelic sound that evokes Irish folk, classical and 60’s folk. Part Chieftains, part Incredible String band, part Joanna Newsom, and holding an intangible misty quality that could only originate from Donegal. Having released the excellent “Yellowback” album in 2008, Captain A return with a new album called “New Country” just in time for the general election.
