Genius is an overused word, but it sits lightly on the shoulders of Galwegian accordionist and tune composer Máirtín O’Connor...His impish, quizzical style is as distinctive as a fingerprint.
— Irish Times

With legendary accordion player, Máirtín O'Connor (De Danann), Cathal Hayden on fiddle and banjo (Four Men and a Dog), and Seamie O'Dowd on guitar and vocals (Dervish).

These three mean business and achieve art. Bravo!
— Irish Echo

Máirtín O’Connor, Cathal Hayden and Seamie O’Dowd:  three titans of Irish music.

These three legendary artists come together with a very special synergy that ignites audiences and brings them to their feet. Virtuoso accordion player, Máirtín, superb fiddle and banjo player, Cathal and beloved guitarist and vocalist Seamie, explore Irish music in innovative and contemporary styles while staying rooted in the tradition. The Trio's joyous performances and kinship on stage make them a must see and hear.
