Multi-instrumentalist and trailblazer Dónal Lunny is one of the greatest Irish musicians alive.

A gifted guitar and bouzouki player, composer and producer Dónal Lunny is a figurehead for Irish traditional music and a house-hold name on the Celtic music scene.

For this trio Dónal joins forces with Pádraig Rynne, who is a virtuoso musician, prolific composer and is regarded as the experimental virtuoso of the concertina in Irish music today.

And, finally Brittany’s Sylvain Barou is considered the best traditional flute player of his generation; pipes and tin whistles.

Barou has pushed the boundaries of Breton music like no other.

When these three influential leading lights of the Irish and Celtic music tradition came together in 2012 it created such a level of excitement that audiences have since flocked to see their select performances at venues and festivals such as Lorient, Sidmouth and the National Concert Hall Dublin.

Having received outstanding reviews for their debut album ‘Triad’ the trio are now one of the most in-demand Irish groups at present.

The group’s live sets are an intimate and breath-taking dive into the Irish tradition via Brittany, Eastern Europe and the world of folk.

Their compelling range of traditional and rearranged tunes are a swirling intoxicating brew of traditional dance, hop and slip-jig sets, slow reels and melodies, all sitting harmoniously alongside newly composed contemporary pieces written by the musicians.

“Three of the best, no doubt about it . . . exotic melodies, hypnotic rhythms, all the ingredients of world class acoustic music” exclaimed Irish Music Magazine.
