The Máirtín O'Connor Trio is made up of the combined talents of Máirtín O'Connor, Cathal Hayden and Séamie O'Dowd.
Máirtín was one of the main musical forces behind the now legendary Riverdance phenomenon, having previously, through his work with De Dannan, Midnight Well, Skylark and as a solo artist, quite simply gone where no Irish accordion player had gone before.
Cathal Hayden is a multiple All-Ireland Championship winner. He achieved worldwide recognition as one of the founder members of Four Men and a Dog. He is one of Ireland's top fiddle players and his solo banjo performances are quite simply show stopping.
Séamie O'Dowd has toured the world for a number of years with Sligo trad. legends, Dervish and has recently played at home and abroad with Liam O'Flynn, Matt Molloy and Meteor Award nominee Mary Mc Partlan.
The Trio first performed live together at a gig in Sligo town organised in memory of Dervish soundman Fin Corrigan.The rapport with each other and the audience was immediate and since then the trio have successfully played gigs in Ireland, Britain,and Europe.This year is shaping up to be a busy one for them, with tours planned in Europe as well as Australia.
