Tim Dennehey with Tim Edey
One of Ireland’s most highly respected traditional singers, Tim Dennehy was born in Ballingskellig, County Kerry and raised in Cahersiveen. Both parents were singers and exposed him to a rich store of songs and stories in English and Irish. While working in Dublin he was one of the founders of the renowned Goilin Singing Club.
Now living in Co. Clare, where he currently teaches at the Christian Brothers School in Ennis, Tim remains in the forefront of the singing community having founded the Clare Festival of Singing as well as presenting his Clare FM programme on Irish music, song, story and poetry. Entitled ‘Keep in Touch’, the programme is a miscellany of music, song, and poetry. Tim’s recordings include A Thimbleful of Song, A Winter's Tear and Farewell to Miltown Malbay.
Tim Edey
In-demand guitarist Tim Edey currently performs with Scottish group Session A9, The Frankie Gavin Band (with whom he appeared at last year’s Return to Camden Town Festival), The Mike McGoldrick Band and also in a duo with Seamus Begley.
Pat Connolly, Jackie, Maighread and Brighid Quirke
London is home to All-Ireland Irish traditional singing champion Pat Connolly from Connemara. Pat’s hard work with Comhaltas, organising fleadhs and various other musical events have brought him around the UK and Ireland. Pat hosts a traditional singing session at The London Irish Centre every second Wednesday of the month.
Jackie Quirke was born in Cork, grew up in Dublin, and learnt Irish in Kerry Ring, Turmakeady, Galway and Inis Oirr (Inisheer). Her repertoire of songs has been learnt along the way. She has been living in London (and Dublin) for 16 years. Jackie’s London-born daughters,
Maighread and Brighid, learnt songs from their mother and father (Mossie) and are winners of the All Britain Fleadh singing in Irish and English.
Helen Roche
Helen Roche grew up in England and Mid Wales. She inherited her singing from her father and grandfather, both of Liverpool, and spent some years performing as a singer-songwriter and in a rock band. Helen also pursued an interest in the Bosnian, Sephardic and Yiddish song traditions, before returning to her roots in the Irish tradition.
Helen is a magnificent singer whose performances have enthralled session audiences, including those at the Ennis Trad Festival, Willie Clancy Week in Miltown Malbay, and the Liverpool Irish Festival, as well as sessions around London, where she now lives. Helen succesfully launched her debut CD Shake the Blossom Early (“a voice of such gorgeous range and timbre”, fRoots) at the 2004 Return to Camden Town festival.
