Caoimhin O'Raghallaigh

Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh plays traditional and contemporary folk music on fiddle, hardanger fiddle and '5+5' fiddle.  In addition to being an established solo artist, he performs duos with dynamic Kerry accordion player Brendan Begley and Dublin uilleann piper Mick O'Brien, plays in a trio with Martin Hayes and Peadar Ó Riada, and is a member of two groups: The Gloaming and This Is How We Fly.  He has released six CDs to date: Kitty Lie Over and Deadly Buzz with Mick O'Brien; A Moment of Madness with Brendan Begley; Triúr sa Draighean with Martin Hayes and Peadar Ó Riada; Comb Your Hair and Curl It with Mícheál Ó Raghallaigh and Catherine McEvoy; and his solo Where the One-Eyed Man is King.  As well his work in traditional Irish music, Caoimhín writes new contemporary material that explores the region where traditional music begins to disintegrate.

"The masterful fingering and bowing technique presenting what sounds like an orchestration of fiddles, reedy, an older feel, pin dropping silence..."  Irish Music Magazine June 2007
