In a move that is sure to energize the Irish traditional music scene, three of Ireland's finest instrumentalists have come together to form 'KGB'.

Paddy Keenan is one of Ireland`s finest pipers, best known as a founding member of the Bothy Band with whom he played in venues all over the world. Paddy's contributions to traditional Irish music were marked in 2002, when he received the TG4 Gradam Ceoil Musician of the Year award and in 2011 by the Irish Music Association, with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Frankie Gavin is one of Ireland`s greatest ever fiddle players. His name is immediately associated with the group De Dannan who are credited with breaking new ground in Irish traditional music through innovative choices of material and arrangements. Frankie has recorded and played with every genre of music from the Rolling Stones to Stephane Grappelli.

Dermot Byrne is one of Ireland's most outstanding traditional accordion players. For many years a member of Altan, Dermot performed, recorded and toured extensively with the group along with artists like Donal Lunny, Steve Cooney and Stephane Grapelli.
