The Claddagh Band

One of the most satisfying aspects of this project has been witnessing the coming together of original members of DeDannan, who must surely rank, along with the Chieftains and Planxty, as one of the most important traditional groups to emerge in Ireland in our time. Augmented by Carl Hession & Tony Maher (keyboards) and Declan O’Donoghue (drums), the band provide a rich organic  soundscape to match the earthy range of singers that includes Dolores & Sean Keane, Mary Coughlan, Sean Tyrrell, Eleanor Shanley, Mary McPartlan, Michelle Lally, Jan Nagle and Johnny Duhan. The overall sound they produce conjures up the salty tones you might hear reverberating around the stony walkways of the Claddagh region of the tribal city.
