John Doyle & Oisin McAuley, Traditional Irish Music and Dance

Two of Ireland's most influential musicians, a guitarist and a fiddler, collaborate in a compelling dual performance. John Doyle is one of the most influential and important musicians in Irish music today. Impossibly in demand in the studio and on the road, immensely talented and blessed with an acute ear, a wicked sense of rhythm and seemingly endless stream of magic in his playing, composing, performing and producing. Doyle is solidly establishing himself as one of the most versatile, creative, and prolific voices in folk and traditional Irish music. Philadelphia News describes Doyle as having “more talent than anybody deserves to have all to themselves.” Oisin McAuley, fiddler, was raised in Carrick, County Donegal, an area in rural North Western Ireland renowned as having one of the finest fiddle traditions of the 21st century. Having learned from Ben Lennon, McAuley went on to study music at Queen’s University in Belfast, Northern Ireland and began performing with a number of bands including Cran, Stockton’s Wing and Hot Club of Dublin. In 2001, McAuley joined the traditional Irish band Danú with whom he performs to the present day and has recorded eight albums.
