Máirtín O’Connor is one of the most respected and best loved musicians ever to emerge from Ireland. As a soloist with the first Riverdance orchestra, through his work with De Dannan, Midnight Well and Skylark and also as a solo artist he has quite simply gone where no Irish accordion player had gone before. A prolific writer of new material, Máirtín’s tunes can be heard on the recordings of many artists and at sessions throughout the world.

Cathal Hayden needs no introduction to anyone even remotely familiar with traditional Irish music. A multiple All-Ireland Championship winner, he achieved world-wide recognition as one of the founder members of Four Men and a Dog. He is one of Ireland’s top fiddlers and his solo banjo performances are quite simply show-stopping.

Seamie O’Dowd’s musical abilities have become increasingly familiar at international level in recent years. Rooted deeply in the traditional music of Sligo, he has played in many genres of acoustic and electric music. He toured the world for a number of years with Sligo traditional legends Dervish and recently has played both home and abroad with the late Liam O’Flynn, Matt Molloy and Mary McPartlan.

 In 2009 the trio released the much anticipated album ‘Crossroads’. Máirtín’s previous albums ‘Road West’ and ‘Rain of Light’ are considered ground- breaking and captivating.
