Hailing from Killarney, County Kerry, Niamh Ní Charra was profoundly influenced by a wealth of local Sliabh Luachra musicians, starting to play at the tender age of 4. A multiple award winner on both fiddle and concertina, she toured from 1998 to 2006 as a soloist with Riverdance, before returning to Ireland where she is now based. Her recently released 5th album Donnelly’s Arm, recorded under challenging circumstances during the pandemic and several lockdowns, has been released to widespread critical acclaim. Joining Niamh on stage is Kevin Corbett, a much sought after guitarist from Newport, Co. Mayo. He took up the guitar at 16 citing the classic rock players of the 70s and early blues players as major influences before a chance encounter led him down the road of traditional Irish acoustic accompaniment.
