This new group brings together the dazzling talents of three of the country’s finest traditional musicians; button accordion master Máirtín O’Connor, fiddle player Zoë Conway and guitar and bouzouki player Donal Lunny. Don’t miss this illustrious trio in what promises to be an atmospheric and unforgettable tour, drawing on an eclectic mix of the old and new where traditional tunes and songs meet each of their diverse influences and unique compositional voices.
The consummate button box player and national treasure, Máirtín O’Connor, was one of the driving forces behind the Riverdance phenomenon.
Fiddle player Zoë Conway is a remarkable talent equally at home playing and singing Latin jazz with Rodrigo y Gabriella, as a guest soloist with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, or touring the world with Riverdance.
Guitar and bouzouki player Donal Lunny needs no introduction, having made his name as a member of the hugely influential groups Planxty, The Bothy Band, Altan and Moving Hearts.
