    DONAL

    Son of the celebrated fiddler Gerry O’Connor and revered singer Eithne Ní Uallacháin of Lá Lugh, multi-instrumentalist Dónal O’Connor has established himself as one of Ireland’s leading producers and musicians. He has played and recorded with the likes of Liam Ó Maonlaí, Duke Special, Grainne Holland, Davy Spillane, Moya Brennan, Dónal Lunny, Steve Cooney, Mary Dillon, Cathal McConnell, Bob Brozman, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, John Spillane, Lumiere and Barry Kerr to name a few!. Having inherited a musical legacy of at least five generations of fiddle playing he has toured the world from a young age as both a lead and backing instrumentalist with a number of bands including Lá Lugh, At First Light, and more recently Ulaid and the Irish song super group A Stór Mo Chroí. He has composed music for theatre, television and film and has presented music shows for BBC ALBA, BBC NI, TG4, BBC Radio Ulster and Raidio na Gaeltachta. “O’Connor’s winning blend of pace and lyricism transmits his enthusiasm for the music directly to the listener with irresistible impact” – Herald Scotland



    MARTIN


    Martin Meehan, born 1977 hails from Manchester. Both Angela Durkin and Michael McGoldrick taught him as a young child and had a profound effect on his future development as a musician. Martin moved from Manchester to County Armagh in 1988 and was immediately attracted to the hustle and bustle of the Armagh Pipers club, organised by Brian and Eithne Vallely. His music at this early stage became enhanced by an eclectic bunch of players such as Brian Finnegan and Niall Vallely, who are renowned for pushing the boundaries in Irish traditional music with their progressive approach. This was an exciting time for traditional music and Martin was at the heart of it! His teacher in Ireland, the late Peg McGrath captivated his attention and influenced his style. Aside from his ability to communicate with an audience cathartically, what makes Martin a stand out musician is his ability to weave in an out of both the progressive and traditional approaches to traditional music without being entirely dominated by one. He has performed all over the world both in a solo and group capacity, appearing on radio and television and has featured in a myriad of festivals. Artists he has collaborated with include; Liam Ó Maonlaí, Arty McGlynn, Seamie O’Dowd, Dónal O’Connor, Bothy Band Tribute Band, Future Trad Collective, North Cregg, Tim Edey, Bríd Harper and At First Light. 
    Martin is just about to release his long awaited second album, The Fox’s Lament.

    ‘One of the most sensual odes to an instrument this side of Miles Davis’ Tutu.’ Siobhan Long, The Irish Times.

    PAUL:

    Born in Manchester, Paul was introduced to the guitar and banjo at the tender age of 8. Schooled by traditional music 'guru' Peter Carberry and by renowned teacher Angela Durkin, his playing flourished in the company of contemporaries such as Mike McGoldrick, Dezi Donnelly & John Joe Kelly. It's no coincidence therefore that his musicianship is so highly regarded by his peers. Returning to Armagh in his teens he quickly established himself on the local music scene, counting Arty Mc Glynn and Cathal Hayden, Stockton's Wing & Mairtín O'Connor amongst his major influences. Playing music professionally since the late 1990's, Paul has variously been a founding member of North Cregg, The Karan Casey Band, Na Dorsa & Buille. He recorded 2 albums and toured for 7 years with, arguably, Ireland's leading traditional group Lúnasa. He has performed and recorded with the legendary American fiddler Liz Carroll and collaborated with international touring acts such as Altan, Natalie Merchant, Paddy Keenan, At First Light, Tommy Peoples, John Carty, Tejador and Brian Finnegan of Flook to name but a few.
    'Paul Meehan's album 'The Lower Road' features fluent guitar and banjo work, a brilliant musician with great tunes. Recommended even to those who think they hate the banjo! It's simply a great album' - Mike McGoldrick
    For some time now, Paul Meehan has been considered a musician's musician. Supporting others with his driving yet understated, inventive and pulsing playing, creating a platform for Ireland's leading lights to shine. Finally, he has emerged from the shadows, to release his eagerly awaited debut album “The Lower Road”. This immensely talented multi instrumentalist takes centre stage, playing Banjo and Guitar on this beautifully crafted, fresh and energetic, yet solidly traditional album.
    'Meehan's solo was a little gem' The Living Tradition
    'A Brilliant player for sure' Netrythms
    'Meehan knows how to weave his playing around others..' Irish Music Magazine
    '...a new level of skill, sophistication and soul worthy of any Irish music devotees interest' New York's Irish Echo
