Trevor Hutchinson is a founding member of Irish traditional music super group Lúnasa and played bass with the Waterboys from 1986 to 1991.
For many years as a member of Altan, Dermot Byrne performed, recorded and toured extensively with the group along with artists like Donal Lunny, Steve Cooney and Stéphane Grappelli, bringing the beauty and joy of traditional Irish music to audiences all over the world. For his contribution to Irish music Dermot was chosen as TG4’s Traditional Musician of the Year 2013.
Steve Cooney is one of the most dynamic modern performers in traditional music. He has played with Stockton’s Wing, Sharon Shannon, Seamus Begley and Sinead O’Connor along with many other groups over the years.
If you haven’t caught award-winning singer Kathleen MacInnes live before, you’re in for a real treat. On stage the Hebridean songbird is a natural, sharing a joke one minute then breaking hearts the next with a soulful, earthy voice that lingers with the listener long after the last note has been sung.
Kathleen will be accompanied on the evening by virtuoso pianist Mhairí Hall and Mike Vass ‘Composer of the Year’ Scots Trad Music Awards.
