Driving forces behind the groups Lúnasa, Buille, Nomos, and North Cregg, individually they have performed and recorded with artists of the calibre of Béla Fleck, Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin, Tim O'Brien, Riverdance, Mary Chapin-Carpenter, Natalie Merchant, Paddy Keenan, Martin Hayes, and Dónal Lunny. Cillian also features on the most recent Bruce Springsteen album High Hopes. They will be touring together for the first time this September with legendary Scottish guitarist Ross Martin. A great night of music in prospect.
"Coming from the musical family that sired the Armagh Pipers Club the brothers' music has retained its dynamic spirit and quietly simmering intensity. The reels and jigs explode with kinetic energy." - John O'Regan, Irish Music Magazine.
