Rooted in the Sliabh Luachra and Clare tradition, Louise and Michelle Mulcahy have both released albums to widespread acclaim, while virtuoso instrumentalists, they are striking for the sweetness and tunefulness of their playing.
Originally from Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick, Louise Mulcahy is an internationally renowned performer and tutor on both uilleann pipes and flute. Louise is a member of the highly acclaimed Mulcahy Family and no musical family today is more impressive in upholding the best principles of the tradition than the Mulcahy’s of Abbeyfeale, West Limerick. Alongside four album releases with father, Mick, and sister Michelle, Louise also appeared a number of years ago on Na Píobairí Uilleann’s compilation of young uilleann pipers entitled ‘A New Dawn’. Louise released her highly acclaimed début solo album titled ‘Tuning the Road’ in 2014.
Michelle Mulcahy is considered to be one of Ireland’s most talented multi-instrumentalists in Irish traditional music today. Her array of instrumental mastery spans concertina, harp, fiddle, accordion, piano and melodeon. Michelle has four highly acclaimed albums recorded by American record label Shanachie and Irish record label ChloIar Chonnachta with her father Mick Mulcahy and sister Louise. Michelle’s debut solo harp album ‘Suaimhneas’ has been receiving worldwide acclaim as one of the top harp albums in Irish music today.
