Event Details

Declan Folan from South Sligo first met Leonard Barry, from North Kerry in London in the early 1990’s where they played music together on the traditional music scene. Between them they have shared the stage and recorded with many musical greats including Kevin Burke, Dervish, John Spillane, Luka Bloom and Lisa O’Neill.

Declan released his latest solo CD, All in Good Time, in 2017 and also released a collection, Skin and Bow, with Junior Davey in 1995 which includes many of his compositions. He learned directly from the masters of the South Sligo tradition including Fred Finn, Peter Horan and Andy Davey. Leonard released his last solo CD in 2013, entitled New Road, which led to the formation of the band of the same name with Rick Epping, Séamie O’Dowd and Andy Morrow. They have released one CD in 2016 entitled Stone Walls and Street Lights.

Declan and Leonard both now live in Sligo. They recently released the critically acclaimed album, Hurry the Jug, with guitarist Shane McGowan.
