Niamh Dunne and Seán Óg Graham in concert
Sunday, September 14, 2014 at 2:00 pm at the Worcester Hibernian Cultural Centre
A highly accomplished singer, fiddler and composer from Co. Limerick, Niamh has been a member with the world renowned band Beoga for the last 7 years and has toured extensively and recorded 3 CDs with them. Their album, “The Incident”, was short listed for a Grammy in 2009 and their “how to tune a fish”, was the Irish Echo’s number 1 album of 2011. The Wall Street Journal describes them as “the most exciting new traditional band to emerge from Ireland this century.” The Living Tradition had this to say about Niamh’s 2013 solo CD “Potraits” “A beguiling mix of traditional and contemporary… unerringly conveying the essence of her interpretive flair and gorgeous singing.”
Growing up steeped in music, song and tradition, she began to play fiddle at the age of 4, and learned her music from her dad Mickey, the well-known piper. In addition to traditional music, she is a well-respected classical violinist and a two time recipient of the high achievers award from the London Associated Board of Western Art Music, with whom she is a qualified teacher. Niamh regularly teaches in The Limerick School of Music and is also a graduate of the Irish World Academy of Music in Limerick University with first class honors. In 2005 she recorded the CD, Legacy, with her Dad and sister, Brid, in which they celebrated the rich musical heritage that has been in her family for generations and showcased her superb playing as well as her singing and love of song.
Joining Niamh will be fellow Beoga bandmate, Seán Óg Graham. The County Antrim native is one of Ireland’s most dynamic button accordion players having achieved numerous All-Ireland titles. In addition, he is also a gifted and much sought after guitarist.
