A gentle giant from the Dingle peninsula in County Kerry, Brendan is a well known and accomplished performer of Irish traditional music on the button accordion, touring at home and in Estonia, Finland, Sweden and France. He is a member of the ‘Boys of the Lough‘, first touring with the band as a guest in the 1980′s in the USA, and full-time member since 1997.
Dublin-born fiddler Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh is rapidly becoming known as one of the most interesting and creative musicians in traditional music. Since the widespread success of his 2003 ‘Kitty Lie Over’ album with Mick O’Brien, he has performed in the United States, Canada, Alaska, Asia and all over Europe. Irish performances in 2006 included Farmleigh House, West Cork Music in Bantry, the National Concert Hall, the Kilkenny Arts Festival, Liberty Hall, and a tour for the Improvised Music Company.
