Méabh Begley on button accordion, Owen Spafford on fiddle and Cáit Ní Riain on piano. The trio bring together the rich musical traditions of Corca Dhuibhne, Co. Tipperary and Yorkshire, their home regions, and find their musical expression and styling from the Gaeltacht of West Kerry where they first met. Drawn together by a love of traditional music, the three shared the tunes they had learnt from family and friends in kitchens and venues across Ireland and England.

They discovered their own blend of fierce dance music and raw harmonies inspired by a deep understanding of their musical inheritance.
