Liam O’Brien
Liam, originally from Miltown Malbay, Co. Clare, grew up in a very musical family. He began learning the tin whistle at the age of four from his mother Bríd and later progressed to the concertina. He studied concertina under Noel Hill and began teaching at the age of sixteen. Liam earned a BA in Irish Music & Dance from the University of Limerick and later won the TG4 Young Musician of the Year Award in 2017. Liam went on to complete a Master’s in Film Production & Direction and he is now based out of Galway working with Nuacht RTÉ & TG4. Liam teaches at festivals and colleges in Ireland and abroad, including Scoil Samhradh Willie Clancy and the Irish World Academy. Liam still conducts concertina workshops and performs globally in countries like Japan, USA, Tanzania, and all across Europe.

Ciara Ní Bhriain

Ciara Ní Bhriain started learning violin with Young European Strings at age three. At age 12, she began studying viola at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Chatham Row. She later pursued her studies on viola with David O’Doherty in Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), where she was also studying Irish and concert harp with the wonderful Denise Kelly.

Coming from a musical family, Ciara has had the opportunity to perform internationally with her dad Mick, and with her siblings and has toured with artists including Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien, Birkin Tree, Carlos Nunez, and Frankie Gavin and the Provenance. She spent two years as resident performer with her band TradGad at Raglan Road, in Disneyland Florida. More recently, Ciara performed as soloist with the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra, performing The Princess Grace Suite, composed by Frankie Gavin.
A little closer to home, Ciara completed a tour of Ireland in 2022 with Johnny Óg Connolly, performing his composition, An Cosán Draíochta. Solo performances by Ciara include a recent appearance at Powers Golden Hours in Whelans, Ardán at The Séamus Ennis Arts Centre, a series curated by Louise Mulcahy highlighting emerging female traditional musicians and performed as soloist with the Irish Memory Orchestra at the Jeonju International Music Festival in South Korea.

Ciara is currently studying Audio Production and Music Project Management at Dublin’s Sound Training College and Dublin Business School. She continues to teach both fiddle and harp, including at DCU’s St Patrick’s Campus. Ciara can be heard regularly on Irish radio and television.
