Hailing from Derrytresk in County Tyrone, Niall is a traditional singer/guitarist and is the current recipient of the Young Musician's Platform Award from the Arts Council. Niall comes from a very musical family and at an early age he began learning traditional songs from the singing of his late Grandfather Geordie Hanna. At 13, Niall won an-Ireland Fleadh title in singing and has since combined his traditional style with his guitar playing. In recent years he has performed on numerous tours in Europe and beyond, sharing the stage with names including Reel It In, The Rapparees, Buille, Cathal Hayden and many more. Niall has gained a reputation amongst singers and musicians alike, and has used the Young Musicans Award this year to collect and record a mixture of traditional/folk songs in his own style.
