About June and Michael:

June comes from Ballintogher, Co. Sligo. She won the senior flute competition at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann in 1998. In the same year, June was presented with the Young Traditional Musician of the Year award by TG4. June recently published an Irish flute tutorial entitled ‘Fliúit’.

Michael comes from Co. Monaghan. He is a music graduate of Queen’s University, Belfast. Michael is an internationally recognized harpist and concertina player, as well as a tutor and producer on the Irish musical scene. He is also a well known composer of traditional Irish music in Ireland, and many of his compositions can be heard on his CD ‘Ocras’. Michael spent three years working for Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann, and produced the Comhaltas tours of Britain, Ireland and America during that time.In 2006 he published a book entitled ‘Harp Tunes’, which contains twenty three of his compositions.

This young couple have already achieved great things individually, including major awards and acclaimed recordings. The material on Draíocht and Lands End is mostly off the beaten track, with many little-known tunes unearthed over several years, as well as many of Rooney’s own compositions. By the time you reach the end of Draíocht, you’ll be captivated by the charming music of this young couple.
