Cathal McConnell is one of traditional music’s true legends. As a founder of Boys of the Lough he has taken Irish music round the world, touring the US countless times and entertaining audiences with his sweetly sung ballads, his lightly worn virtuosity on flute and tin whistle and his inimitable drolleries. 

His trio with fiddler and violist Kathryn Nicoll and harper Karen Marshalsay formed in late 2015, has appeared at Celtic Connections, Girvan Folk Festival and Edinburgh’s Flute Fling, and finds McConnell in his element, delivering songs with his trademark charm and quiet authority and playing tunes with great skill and a natural feeling for the tradition.
