Traditional Irish Music
"Since 2001 the current line up of the band has been steadily evolving into a cohesive musical entity. With Cathal Hayden on fiddle and Séamie O'Dowd on vocals and guitar, the band have built a formidable musical relationship over the last few years gigging together frequently as well as collaborating in the studio.
The catalyst for this was Máirtín when he invited the others to play on his ground-breaking ‘Road West’ album and again later on the ‘Rain of Light’ recording, much of which went down live such was the musical and personal rapport that had developed between them.
Individually recognised figureheads of the tradition, they have built solid reputations as master musicians with astounding skill, diversity and virtuosity. The group performs mainly as a three piece but is occasionally joined by percussionist extraordinaire Jim Higgins.
