Playing Irish traditional music on concertina and uilleann pipes, this young, energetic duo boasts musical expression beyond their years. Their playing stands as a powerful embodiment of tradition, coupled with sheer musical passion. Tom and Caroline have toured extensively, performing around Europe, Canada, America and Australia. Their music reflects their personalities, fun, vibrant and filled with heart and soul. This concert stands as the latest testament to their musical virtuosity. Caroline Keane recently received the ALSR Celtic Music Awards 2020 for the Female Musician of the Year.
Caroline and Tom both grew up in houses filled with traditional music. From a young age, Caroline was exposed to the richness of West Limerick and Sliabh Luachra traditional music, an influence which has become the cornerstone of her uniquely vibrant, passionate and emotive style of concertina playing. With an Irish father and French mother, Tom gained his musicality through osmosis, born and raised in a rich environment of Irish music. Inspired by the traveling style of piping, his rhythmic playing is powerful and daring.
