I gcomhpháirt le Scoil Samhraidh Mhic Reachtain agus leis na haoí-cheoltóirí - Diane Cannon (Bean an Tí), Mick O’Brien, Derek Hickey, Ryan Molloy, Lorraine Ní Bhriain & George McAdam.

Diane Cannon inherited her musical talents from both sides of her family; all four grandparents were accomplished musicians and singers. Her long-anticipated debut album was released to great critical acclaim. Diane brings the songs and the music played by the hearth fire of a long gone Ceilí house, to the sophisticated tastes of a 21st century audience.

Mick O´Brien was born into an extremely musical family and is a highly regarded performer who has broadcast on TV and radio extensively both as a soloist and with various artists including the likes of Charlotte Church and The Dubliners, to name only a few. His traditional style shows great delicacy and subtlety, strong in rhythm and enlivened by his unique inflections and nuances.

Derek Hickey began his professional musical career at the early age of 15 and joined Irish Supergroup Dé Dannan at the age of 21. In his rich and varied performing experiences, he has shared the stage with some of world's greatest talents including Stephan Grappelli and The Rolling Stones.

Longtime resident of Belfast, Lorraine Ní Bhriain hails from a famous family of musicians in County Clare. She is a highly regarded performer and tutor on the concertina.

George McAdam has won numerous junior and senior All-Ireland titles. George is a highly sought-after performer, recording artist and tutor throughout Ireland, the UK, Europe and North America. Broadcast performances include TG4, RTÉ, RTÉ Radio and Na Píobairí Uilleann’s monthly Session with the Pipers.

Ryan Molloy was recently awarded TG4 Gradam Ceoil Composer of the Year (2024) and is widely recognised as one of the masters of modern accompaniment in Irish traditional music. His compositions, rooted in the language of Irish traditional music, have been performed by world-leading ensembles.
