Eleanor Shanley & De Danann

“Once described as ‘the Rolling Stones of Irish Traditional Music’, the legendary group De Danann, returned to the festival stage in 2009 with a new album ‘Wonderwaltz’ and trips to Finland, Switzerland, Denmark, Italy and the USA. The band have found themselves once again in hot demand by promoters in Europe and the USA.

Founding member Alec Finn is joined by Eleanor Shanley (vocals), Derek Hickey (accordion), Brian McGrath (banjo/piano), Ronan O’Flaherty (fiddle) and Neill Lyons (bodhrán).

De Danann were formed in 1975 in Galway and became one of the most influential bands in traditional Irish music before going their separate ways in 2003. The group released their debut album ‘De Danann’ in 1975 and in total have recorded 14 albums including ‘Anthem’, ‘Star Spangled Molly’, and ‘A Jacket of Batteries’ and achieved chart success, with many of the albums reaching gold and platinum status.
