Ronan Browne • Uilleann Pipes

Born and bred in Dublin, Ronan Browne left the city in 1990, spending ten years in the Glen of Imaal in Wicklow before crossing the Shannon in the year 2000, to live in Spiddal.

Musicians Peter O’Loughlin, Willie Clancy, Séamus Ennis, Leo Rowsome, Tommy Reck, Denis Murphy and Tommy Potts were family friends so it is no wonder that they all had a huge influence on Ronan’s musical development. It was only in later years that the singing of his maternal grandmother, Delia Murphy, became important to him, as the young Ronan saw her more as a grandmother than an influential singer.

Ronan’s first lessons were from Dan O’Dowd with the newly formed Na Píobairí Uilleann in the early 1970s, and as he grew older John Kelly’s Capel Street shop, The Horse Shoe, and the Four Seasons pub next door became his places of learning.

Since 2007, Ronan has been playing pipes, flutes and whistles for wedding ceremonies and he was awarded Wedding Musician of the Year 2011 at the Weddings Online awards.

Kevin Glackin • Fiddle

Kevin Glackin comes from a musical family in Dublin. He started playing the fiddle at the age of six under the guidance of his late father Tom who came from the Rosses in Donegal, and it is indeed the Donegal style of fiddle playing that is most evident in Kevin’s playing. Growing up in Dublin, players such as Frank O’Higgins, Leo Rowsome, John Joe Gardiner and John Kelly were regular visitors to the Glackin household and as a result Kevin was exposed at an early age to a wide range of different styles.

Kevin has toured extensively in Europe, the U.S.A. and Asia. He currently lives in Dublin and teaches fiddle on the traditional music course in the Conservatory of Music and Drama at the Dublin Institute of Technology.

Seán Tyrrell • Banjo, Bouzouki, Guitar

Seán Tyrrell was born in Galway City and has lived in County Clare for many years. He was the first on either side of his family to take up music although his father was a fairly good singer in the Irish tenor style. Musical help with his first stumbling steps was given to him by his good friend Jack Geary and from then on he has been self taught. The people who have influenced Seán most are Dónal Standún, Joe Cooley, Kevin Keegan, Seán Chóilín Ó Conaire, Liam Weldon and Martin Rochford.

As well as the ongoing relationship with Ronan and Kevin, Seán has been involved in many other musical combinations with Paddy Keenan, Tommy Peoples, Little John Nee and the poet Mary O’Malley.
