Multi-instrumentalist and trailblazer Dónal Lunny is one of the greatest Irish musicians alive. For this trio, he joins forces with Padraig Rynne the experimental virtuoso of the concertina and Sylvain Barou on flutes, who has pushed the boundaries of Breton music like no other. When these three influential leading lights of the Irish and Celtic music tradition came together in 2012 it created such a level of excitement that audiences have since flocked to see their select performances at venues and festivals such as Lorient, Sidmouth and the National Concert Hall Dublin.
Having received outstanding reviews for their debut album 'Triad' (see below), the trio are now one of the most in demand Irish groups at present. Their live sets are an intimate and breath-taking dive into the Irish Tradition via Brittany, Eastern Europe and the world of folk. Their compelling range of traditional and rearranged tunes are a swirling intoxicating brew of traditional dance, hop and slip-jig sets, slow reels and melodies, all sitting harmoniously alongside newly composed contemporary pieces written by the musicians.
