Eimear Coughlan

Instruments: Harp

Eimear Coughlan from Tulla in Co. Clare continues the musical heritage of her grandfather Paddy Canny. As a multi-instrumentalist, she has performed on several music tours throughout Europe with the ‘Irish Harp Orchestra’. Over the past number of years, Eimear has accumulated many All Ireland titles at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann and has performed and taught at numerous Traditional Irish Music festivals throughout Ireland. While also a fiddle player, Eimear learned her music from her grandfather and in more recent times, she has been performing with the highly acclaimed Tulla Céilí Band. Eimear’s harp playing can be heard on the new album ‘Úrnua’ with Carl Hession and Francis Cunningham. This album features 40 original compositions by Carl, one of the foremost piano accompanists and orchestral arrangers in Irish Traditional Music.
