Born into a musical family, siblings Séamus & Caoimhe Uí Fhlatharta hail from the village of An Áird Mhóir in the Gaeltacht region of Connemara, County Galway. They are noted for their sean nós singing (unaccompanied traditional Irish vocal performance in the Irish language) and their unique arrangements of both Irish and English language songs. 

They take a particular interest in vocal arrangement and harmonization with their performances benefitting from the vocal tones that only families share. Their Late Late Show performance in 2022 of the soulful lament Anach Cuain captured the mood of the nation and went viral around the world. 

They are both accomplished multi-instrumentalists, Irish dancers and All-Ireland-winning performers who keep the Irish language and their heritage at the heart of all their musical endeavors. Caoimhe is currently studying a BA in Irish Music at the Irish World Academy at the University of Limerick. Séamus is studying a BA in Applied Languages which includes Irish, also at UL.

Séamus and Caoimhe have just released their first EP. It is produced by Brian Whelan and Riverdance composer Bill Whelan and recorded at their studio at The Fort, Roundstone, Connemara.

Roisin is from Inishowen Co.Donegal. Growing up in Inishowen, she was exposed to the rich culture of music and in particular to the great fiddle playing of Dinny Mc Laughlin. With her brothers Paul Harrigan (piano accordion and uilleann pipes) and Damien Harrigan (fiddle) Roisin has performed and taught at festivals and events throughout Ireland, Europe and America.

Roisin is a co-founder of the Inishowen Traditional Music Project established in 1999. Over the past 23 years Roisin has worked voluntarily co-ordinating and facilitating workshops, performances, concerts, collaborations, exchange visits & recitals and as project leader has over seen the delivery of two commercial recordings of Inishowen musicians Seamus Grant and Dinny Mc Laughlin.

Ella McGrory is a student of the Irish World Academy of the University of Limerick. ‘Loinnir’ is her first studio recording alongside her sister Deirdre. The record has a mixture of traditional and folk songs and a blend of contemporary accompaniment. ‘Loinnir’ encapsulates their favourite aspects of music from their childhood.
