Ardú is Ireland’s premier a capella vocal ensemble.  This six-voice group is internationally recognised, having represented Ireland at the Tempere Vocal Festival in Finland, as well as being asked to perform on the Sky One a cappella show ‘Sing: Ultimate A Cappella’.

2017 also saw Ardú host the first ever Irish International A Cappella Competition, featuring Grammy Award winners The Swingles. The ensemble has performed at the London A Cappella Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in recent times, building their standing as Ireland’s ambassadors of contemporary a cappella.  

2019 saw them receive a CARA (Contemporary A Capella Recording Awards) nomination for their album ‘GRAVITY’ and plan a European tour.

We are so excited to have Ciarán Kelly, Ardú’s Artistic Director, facilitating at this years Gospel Rising Music Festival.
