Poitín (/ˈpʊn/; Irish pronunciation: [ˈpˠotʲiːn]) is a Celtic band from the Czech Republic.[1] They have been active since 1997 and their music includes traditional Irish music, Scottish music and original tunes in the Celtic genre. Their most recent album, Wish was released in March 2014. Their previous CD Bofiguifluki, released in 2010, was the first recording by a Czech band to be voted Celtic Album of the year 2010 by Celtic Radio.Net.[2] They were one of the first Celtic music groups to form in the Czech Republic after the Velvet Revolution and have had a significant influence on the development of the Celtic musical scene in that country.[3]
