Nothing is missed or missing in Brian Conway’s Sligo-style fiddling. He was named the Irish Echo’s Top Trad Artist for 2008.

Kevin Doyle – The recipient of a National Heritage Fellowship in Irish Dance from the National Endowment for the Arts, the highest award for a traditional folk artist in the United States .With more than 57 years of dance under his feet, the tradition has taken him from
a White House performance to the prestigious Willie Clancy Summer School in
County Clare as a 2015 featured presenter and teacher.

Accompanied by:

John Williams – Formed the groundbreaking Solas in 1995 with Seamus Egan, Winifred Horan, Karan Casey and John Doyle, Williams received wider recognition playing to sold out audiences internationally and earning two NAIRD awards and Grammy nominations.
