Dublin-based with Clare and Connemara connections, Eoghan Ó Ceannabháin and Ultan O’Brien have been playing together for many years in various bands, including contemporary Irish folk band Skipper’s Alley. Their involvement with Manx singer Ruth Keggin and the international Gaelic project ‘Aon Teanga (One Tongue)’ took them to Highland Scotland, where they carefully crafted their debut album at Watercolour Music, in Lochaber. And so ‘Solas an Lae’ (The Light of Day) was born.

The human voice and the fiddle are often thought of as musical cousins. ‘Solas an Lae’, Eoghan and Ultan’s debut offering, is a compelling exploration of that relationship, creating a unique dialogue that blends raw, rugged earth with the ethereal otherworld.

Bouncing songs and strings off one another, Eoghan on voice and flute, and Ultan on fiddle and viola, have created a duo album that emerges viscerally from the sean-nós roots of upbringing to blossom into two of the most articulate Irish musical voices on the scene today.

Winner of the 2019 BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award, and 2016 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk award Scotland’s Brìghde Chaimbeul is making a mark on the global stage. A native Gaelic speaker, her style is rooted in her language and culture, but draws inspiration from a variety of global piping traditions such as from Eastern Europe, Cape Breton and Ireland.

Her debut album ‘The Reeling’ has had an extraordinary response since it’s launch at a sold out Celtic Connections show at the start of 2019. It was named as Folk Album Of The Month by The Guardian, given five star reviews in both fRoots and Songlines, lavished with praise by BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction and listed as one of The Quietus’s Albums Of The Year. The Reeling was voted one of the 20 Scottish Albums Of The Year by the Say Awards (out of 293 submissions) and secured a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award win for Brìghde.
