Event Details

Máirtín O’Connor is one of the most respected musicians to emerge from Ireland in recent years. As solo accordionist with the first Riverdance orchestra, through his work with De Dannan, Midnight Well and Skylark and also as a solo artist he has quite simply gone where no Irish accordion player had gone before. Many fine musicians have played in Máirtín’s bands. For the past nine years the group has included multi-all Ireland winner Cathal Hayden and former Dervish member Séamie O’Dowd with percussionist Jim Higgins joining them occasionally.

In 2009 the trio released the much anticipated album, Crossroads. Máirtín’s previous albums, Road West and Rain of Light, are considered ground- breaking and captivating. A prolific writer of new material, Máirtín’s tunes can be heard on the recordings of many artists and at sessions throughout the world.

Cathal Hayden on fiddle and banjo is a multiple All-Ireland Championship winner. He achieved world-wide recognition as one of the founder members of Four Men and a Dog.

Seamie O’Dowd (guitars, vocals) is rooted deeply in the traditional music of Sligo. He has played in many genres of acoustic and electric music. He toured the world for a number of years with Dervish and subsequently with Liam O’Flynn, Matt Molloy and Mary McPartlan.
