Boghnid, the Manx gaelic word for 'foolishness', are a group of traditional Manx musicians and dancers based on the Isle of Man. The group is built of accomplished musicians from many eclectic backgrounds. Bred in the Isle of Man, the group perform traditional and new Manx music.

Comprising of a blend of various long-standing dance groups and musical bands from all corners of the island, they were originally brought together as “Ny Maninnee” to represent the Island at the Festival Interceltique de Lorient in Brittany in 2021.
