Ireland’s great and historic tradition of music is expressed in the soul of traditional music. Though it is an evolving art, traditional music heard with traditional instruments by traditional players has a special appeal to the hearts of Germans who long for ‘authenticity’. The Three Lads present seldom-heard melodies, harking back to an old tradition which enriches the understanding of Irish history.

Dr Fintan Vallely is a flute-player, lecturer and writer in Irish traditional music. He has played around the world and teaches flute at the Clare Willie Clancy Summer School. His many books include the Encyclopaedia Companion to Irish Traditional Music and the first ever history of the Irish drum: Beating Time: the Story of the Irish Bodhrán.

Mark Redmond is an outstanding uilleann piper who not only plays traditional Irish music, but has performed in a wide range of genres, including with the National Symphony Orchestra and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, and the international touring shows Riverdance, Celtic Woman and Camerata Ireland. The highlight of his career to date has been his superb rendering on solo uilleann pipes with orchestra in composter Sean Davey’s The Brendan Voyage.

John Kelly was born in the heart of Dublin city, and plays the County Clare music which he learnt on fiddle from his father — a legendary fiddle player in the mould-breaking, experimental music ensemble Ceoltóirí Chualann in the 1960s.
