Traditional Irish Music by the Blackwater band - An Rinn, County Waterford
We are the best traditional Irish music band you will have heard in a long time! The Band members are all accomplished in their various instruments and are lead by Christy O’Neill on guitar and vocals.
Christy has played with many bands particularly well know was Bodhran. No man has a greater love for the music as he plays seven nights and sometimes days, in his bar near Dungarvan called the Marine Bar. He has released various CD's and most notably The Best Irish Pub Songs in the World, which went gold.
On Bodhran we have Michael Flynn or best known to one and all as Finn. A master of the Bodhran and very handy at the singing Finn brings his own special beat to the music accompanied by the odd story or two. With over 40 years of playing under his belt and again having played for many years with Bodhran no man knows the beat of the music better than him.
Caroline King is the only female member of the band and plays guitar, whistle and practically any instrument you care to mention. However she is best known for her skill on the piano accordion which she plays so effortlessly. She has a beautiful Irish Singing voice and sings both in Irish and English. A writer of many songs and music another fantastic musician who can hold her own with anyone.
Michael McKenna, probably the best button accordion player in the World. Words cannot describe what he is capable of doing with an accordion passed down to him from his father who started to teach him at the age of three and a half. An all Ireland winner when young and a world winner as he reaches the peak of his playing. Listen and be amazed!
Nicky Power on whistles brings the haunting airs to this first class group of musicians. He has shared the stage with musicians like the chieftains and played his version of the lonesome boatman for the Fureys. His control of breath and touch of the fingers enable him to give clarity and feeling to every note he plays. Playing the concert flute to the traditional tin whistle he will thrill your senses with traditional tunes.
