Tá lúcháir ar An Droichead ár gcéad ghig le Four Men & a Dog a chur i bhur láthair chun tús spleodrach a chur le Féile An Droichead 2019.

Four Men and a Dog emerged in 1990 during the Belfast Folk Festival as one of the most exciting trad bands in the world. They were the first Irish band everto win Album of the Year from Folk Roots magazine. Featuring Cathal and Stephen Hayden, Donal Murphy, Gino Lupari and Kevin Doherty, their fiery tune sets are second to none for passion & precision, while the songs are full of surprise.

Ceol arsa na cruite agus na píbe uileann curtha le hamhráin sean-nós ag na triúr maistrí seo in imeacht speisialta ar fad.

Laoise Kelly & Tiarnán Ó Duinnchinn are a rare duet of Irish Harp and Uilleann Pipes. From Mayo and Monaghan respectively, they are leading, influential exponents of their instruments. Their acclaimed album ‘Ar Lorg na Laochra’ | ‘On the Shoulders of Giants’ pays homage to the source of their repertoire, encompassing many of the various tune and song air types to be found in 17th-19th century manuscripts from different parts of Ireland.

The duo have performed together for many years and have recorded and collaborated with many renowned Irish and International musicians from Moya Brennan to the Chieftains.

Nell Ní Chróinín hails from the Irish speaking Múscraí Gaeltacht of West Cork. This area is historically linked with a strong heritage of song and music. Nell was exposed to these local traditions of the area from a very young age.

Her achievements include several underage singing medals and titles from various Irish festival competitions as prestigious as Oireachtas na Gaeilge and The Fleadh Ceoil.

Nell is also the youngest ever recipient to receive ‘TG4’s Gradam Ceoil Traditional Singer of the Year‘ award in 2012 and the prestigious Corn Uí Riada award which she was awarded in 2014.

Beirt laochra den tradisiún, tá clú agus cáil bainte amach ag Tríona agus ag Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill

ar fud an domhain le Skara Brae agus The Bothy Band.

Maighread and Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill are among the most highly regarded traditional singers in Ireland. Born in Kells, Co. Meath they’ve both been domiciled in Dublin for many years although Triona spent some time living in North Carolina and then Oregon in the 1980’s following the demise of the seminal traditional music group the Bothy Band with whom she recorded four albums.

Maighread and Tríona gleaned much of their repertoire from their aunt Neillí Ni Dhomhnaill who was from Rannafast. The sisters formed the hugely influential 'Skara Brae' in the early 1970’s along with their brother Mícheál Ó Domhnaill and the Derry born guitarist and singer Daithí Sproule.

The close harmonies and adventurous musical arrangement that Skara Brae pioneered were to impact enormously on the development of

Irish folk music.
