If music offers a window to the soul, then that of the piper and whistle player Eoin Duignan's is a kaleidoscopic fanlight into a world where the spirit reigns unopposed."
Eoin Duignan

Siobhán Long The Irish Times 30th July 2004

Eoin Duignan is a soulful, powerhouse performer and gifted composer, steeped in the Irish Tradition.

He is a renowned uilleann piper and low whistle player influenced at an early age by the master pipers Seamus Ennis and Leo Rowsome.

Eoin has developed his own distinctive musical style, that is original in a traditional mode. It ranges from the haunting slow airs to the lively percussive reels and jigs which have enchanted audiences worldwide and set them dancing wherever he has played.
His childhood summers were spent in the west Cork gaeltacht of Cúil Aodha where his passion for the language, singing and dancing traditions flourished. In the late nineteeen seventies he toured extensively throughout Europe as part of the legendary folk-group The Wild Geese.

He has been based in Dingle for the last twenty years with his partner Ilonka and their family, and continues to work and tour his music both at home and abroad.

Eoin has released three very highly critically acclaimed CDs of his own compositions: Coumíneol, Ancient Rite and Lumina. He is accompanied on all three CDs by many of Irelands leading musicians including Steve Cooney, Robbie Overson, Robbie Harris, Liam Bradley, Liam Ó Maonlaí, Máire Breathnach, Keith Donald and Trevor Hutchinson.

His latest work is Lumina, a six part suite for low whistles, tracing the journey of the spirit from birth to death to rebirth. It received a 10 ot of 10 rating in Hot Press music magazine. The music, inspired by the Harry Clarke stained glass windows in Dingle was produced by world- renowned guitarist /producer Gerry O'Beirne.

Music from these CDs has featured in television programmes and documentaries for RTÉ, TG4, BBC, and on American and Australian TV.
