Brian Donnellan

Instruments: Bouzouki | Concertina

Brian’s deep connection to and understanding of the music from his native East Clare is evident in his empathetic and flowing style of concertina playing. He adopts a very simple but rhythmic style when playing the bouzouki, allowing space for the melody to flourish. He has performed at venues and festivals including The National Concert Hall, Irish Arts Center New York and Auckland Arts Festival. Brian plays with the renowned Tulla Céilí Band and is a member of the quintet, Martin Hayes & The Common Ground Ensemble, who last year released their debut album, Peggy’s Dream.
