‘Toucan Dubh’ (pronounced ‘two-can-dew’) are a musical group performing Irish / Celtic and modern music, based in the Atlanta, Georgia area. ‘Dubh’ is a Gaelic word meaning ‘black’ or ‘dark’. Birds of black hue are prominent in myth and legend, bringing portents, wisdom, advice & the like, and are highly regarded in Celtic culture as well as others. The toucan is a bird representing the fun, whimsical side of Irish and Celtic music that this group brings to their performances. The ‘Toucan Dubh’, this imaginary black toucan, blends the traditional, the mystical, and the delightful together into one. The perfect symbol for this group!
