Laoise Kelly & Tiarnán Ó Duinnchinn are a rare duet of Irish Harp and Uilleann Pipes. From Mayo and Monaghan respectively, they are leading, influential exponents of their instruments. Their acclaimed album ‘Ar Lorg na Laochra’ | ‘On the Shoulders of Giants’ pays homage to the source of their repertoire, encompassing many of the various tune and song air types to be found in 17th-19th century manuscripts from different parts of Ireland. The duo have performed together for many years and have recorded and collaborated with many renowned Irish and International musicians from Moya Brennan to the Chieftains.
Nell Ní Chróinín hails from the Irish speaking Múscraí Gaeltacht of West Cork. This area is historically linked with a strong heritage of song and music. Nell was exposed to these local traditions of the area from a very young age. Her achievements include several underage singing medals and titles from various Irish festival competitions as prestigious as Oireachtas na Gaeilge and The Fleadh Ceoil.
Nell is also the youngest ever recipient to receive ‘TG4’s Gradam Ceoil Traditional Singer of the Year‘ award in 2012 and the prestigious Corn Uí Riada award which she was awarded in 2014.
