The duo features a unique collaboration between two distinguished names in traditional Irish and American folk music: Cillian Vallely (uilleann pipes & whistles) and Ryan McGiver (guitar & vocals).
Armagh native Cillian Vallely has established his name over the last decade through his playing with award-winning traditional Irish supergroup Lunasa that was described by the New York Times as “the hottest acoustic band in the world”.
New York state singer and guitarist Ryan McGiver is knownon either side of the Atlantic for his unique blend of open string guitar and breathy, eerie vocals. Over the past decade he has performed extensively throughout North America, Europe and Asia and his music has been showcased on the BBC, RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta, NPR and The Lantern Journal.
