Kevin Conneff is often said to have helped popularise the rise of the bodhrán worldwide as a member of the legendary band, The Chieftains, with whom he has sung and played with for in excess of 30 years now. Dublin born Kevin is a master traditional singer and bodhrán player.

Mary Bergin is acknowledged as one of Ireland’s finest ever tin whistle players, a founder of the popular all women band Dordan she has toured worldwide and her album “Feadog stain” remains a timeless classic.

Tim Edey, BBC R2 Best musician of 2012, was born across the water in Kent. Tim is both a successful solo and session artist with his recent album “Sailing Over the 7th String” produced by none other than Robin Wynn Evans ( The Manic Street Preachers). Tim’s CV reads like a who’s who of Irish music—Christy Moore, The Chieftains, Mary Black, Altan, Seamus Begley and Sharon Shannon to name a but a few.
