Drumshanbows CD

This newly released fiddle duet CD by Rónán Regan and Irene Guckian, is, true to it's name, centred around the musical accent and repertoire of Leitrim's lyrical heritage.

The CD is a fiddle duet in the Leitrim Style, comprising of Irene Guckian (fiddle) and Rónán Regan (fiddle) with guests including Paddy Ryan (fiddle), Mick Blake (piano), Ciaran Curran (bouzouki) and Tommy Murry (Recitation).  It's a CD that is true to the musical accent of Leitrim and it's surrounds and is very much influenced by Rónán and Irene's musical mentors and friends Ben Lennon, Jim Connolly, Paddy Ryan and Fr. John Quinn.


Credited with having a flair for lyrical composition Rónán has performed and taught many of his compositions in both Europe and America.

Some of these compositions have also been recorded as well as performed for TV in Germany (NDR 2008) and in Ireland (TG4 and RnaG 2011-15) and for radio on Limerick's Live95FM (2004).
Rónán is currently working on a number of collaborative music projects incorporating his musical compositions. including the newly released CD 'Drumshanbows' March, 2014.

It’s a fantastic album, it’s getting great reviews, everybody who’s bought it has been really, really impressed with it.
