Kevin Glackin’s family name is synonymous with fiddle playing. His father Tom came from Donegal and the style associated with this region is strongly evident in Kevin’s playing. He has toured extensively, appeared on numerous albums, television & radio programmes, teaches undergraduates in Dublin’s Institute of Technology, and regularly features at the ‘Willie Clancy Summer School’ and at the Glencolmcille ‘Fiddlers Week’.
Besotted since childhood with the music of the old masters, Ronan Browne began piping in 1972. Having worked on nearly 200 albums and toured the world over many times, he now leads a gentler life in Conamara and doesn’t get out of bed for less than a tenner. One of his favourite, though rare, diversions is playing tight-formation music with Kevin.
