Sorcha Costello
Awarded with the prestigious Gradam Ceoil TG4 Young Musician of the Year 2021, Sorcha Costello is a traditional Irish fiddle player from Tulla Co. Clare and hails from a family immersed in traditional Irish music. From a young age, Sorcha has enjoyed performing nationally and internationally including tours of New Zealand, Australia and America already this year. She is also in high demand as a teacher of music, especially in her home area of East Clare because of her ability to transmit her unique style which has the trademark rhythm and swing qualities of generations of her family.
Released in June 2023, Sorcha Costello’s new album The Primrose Lass is a solo fiddle album which encompasses a unique variety of both old and new tunes. The style and flow of this album resembles Sorcha’s love of the old tradition, evidenced through the swing, rhythm and uncomplicated playing of tunes. Deeply rooted in the East Clare style, yet containing all her other musical influences from around the world, this album keeps the listener engaged throughout. Both accompanists on the album, John Blake (guitar + bouzouki) and Catherine McHugh (keyboard) weave their way around Sorcha’s fiddle playing to create a warm, comfortable atmosphere. This debut solo album has resulted in two RTE Radio 1 Folk award nominations for Sorcha, including ‘best folk instrumentalist’ and ‘’best emerging artist’ 2023.

Jillian O’Malley
Jillian O’Malley is a flute and whistle player from Louisburgh, County Mayo. Jillian has been recognised with various awards down through the years including the prestigious Bonn Óir Sheáin Uí Riada in 2020, and at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann where she has won 9 All-Ireland Titles, including the Senior Flute and Tin Whistle competitions. Jillian has performed at various festivals and in venues across the country and has featured on numerous music programmes on TG4 and Raidió na Gaeltachta.
Her traditional style and repertoire is influenced predominantly by musicians from Mayo, the wider Connacht region, and Gaeltacht Chonamara. Now residing in County Clare, Jillian plays regularly in local sessions and her love of Irish music, the Irish language and song continues to go hand in hand.
