First Listen : Fionntán McDonald & Eoin Kearns

Their Facebook pages states that "The dynamic Lurgan duo of Fionntán McDonald and Eoin Kearns play an eclectic blend of Irish, American and contemporary instrumental music." They have just made a short 4 Track EP to mark their arrival on the scene and its pretty impressive. Fiddle with guitar, guitar with banjo, a tinge of old time in there.  In a discussion with Discover Northern Ireland Eoin explained

“We put some jigs and reels together for our audition tape for An Ré Nua, and after we won and got to the recording studio, we were taking more time and care with arrangements, tune selection, originality and continuing to build on the success of what we’ve done so far. 
An Ré Nua is a great competition which hopefully will continue for a long time. We both prefer playing on stage as opposed to traditional Fleadh competitions so it suited us really well. It gave us a chance to try out our own style and it paid off. It was a really enjoyable experience,” Source Discover Northern Ireland
