Mick O'Brien is one of our best-loved uilleann pipers, performing regularly as a solo artist, with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, and with the Norwegian groups Vamp, Hanne Krogh, and Secret Garden. His first solo album 'The May Morning Dew' (1996) was received with great critical acclaim, and his duo album with Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh 'Kitty Lie Over' (2003) has since become a classic. He comes from a great Dublin musical family, and now his own children are becoming fine performers in their own right.

Tom Morrow is most known for his playing with the well-known group Dervish. The group have toured extensively worldwide and have recorded 8 albums alongside performing at the major world folk and traditional festivals.  Tom has won numerous awards including the All Ireland Senior Fiddle championship.  He has also guested on numerous albums, including recent releases: Garadice, John Wynne’s ‘With Each Breath’, Galician piper Pepe Vaamonde’s ‘Aviouga’, Eamonn Coyne’s ‘Through the Round Window’ and singer Mary McPartland’s ‘The Holland Handkerchief’, alongside regular guesting with other international artists including Chris Thile’s Nickelcreek at the Cambridge Folk Festival.

The Ward Sisters  - Lisa, Yvonne, and Sarah Ward hail from Aughnasheelin, Co. Leitrim.  All three are All Ireland champions, multi-instrumentalists and Irish and Sean Nós dancers.  They have performed extensively around Ireland and abroad, and on numerous radio and TV shows, including Ryan Tubridy’s 2FM radio show, RnaG, TG4 and RTE.  The Ward Sisters received an Arts and Culture Award from Leitrim County Council in recognition of their outstanding contribution and promotion of Irish Traditional Music around Ireland.
