First listen to the new album by Zoë Conway, Máirtín O'Connor and Dónal Lunny

This is the first track off the new album by  Zoë Conway,  Máirtín O'Connor and Dónal Lunny called In Full Sail. The tunes are Paddy In London / A Tailor I Am / Adam And Eve.

Máirtín O'Connor was part of the original Riverdance phenomenon. Add to that his work with bands such as De Dannan, Midnight Well and Skylark, his reputation as a composer and solo artist, and recording sessions with Elvis Costello and Mark Knopfler, and it's easy to see why O'Connor is regarded in the folk firmament as something of a national treasure.

Fiddle player Zoë Conway is equally at home playing and singing with Rodrigo y Gabriella, Lisa Hannigan, as a guest soloist with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, performing with Lou Reed and Nick Cave, or touring the world with Riverdance. However, traditional Irish music remains close to her heart, witnessed in her highly-acclaimed solo albums.

Guitar and bouzouki player Dónal Lunny needs no introduction, having made his name as a member of the hugely influential groups Planxty, The Bothy Band, Altan and Moving Hearts. A gifted composer, arranger and producer, Lunny has also worked with rock and pop musicians such as Van Morrison, Elvis Costello and Kate Bush.

This album is an independent release and was recorded at Grouse Lodge Studios.

It is available from and can be downloaded from Bandcamp

I know it's not strictly trad, but why no drummer? It's a powerful piece and would be enhanced by the addition, why hold back? You guys are top notch and you do carry it off. Apologies if I'm being pernickety.
