The Fiddle Case with Luka Bloom
THE FIDDLE CASE with special guest LUKA BLOOM. The Fiddle Case are Eoin O’Neill, Adam Shapiro and brothers Jon & Kieran O’Connell.
A North Clare based band bringing years of experience combined with a new freshness, which is loved by their audiences in County Clare and internationally.
Eoin O’Neill has been playing his bouzouki in Doolin and around the world for over 30 years; and since double bass player & singer Jono arrived on the scene
they have developed a unique and tasteful approach to backing trad music. They are joined by ace fiddler Adam Shapiro, who’s sweet tone with driving, tasty bouzouki and
double bass accompaniment ensures a full sound, ranging from pure trad to spontaneous supercharged jams, with emotional and raw renditions of songs.
The Fiddle Case have recently been joined by Clare man Kieran O’Connell. Kieran plays the bodhrán and guitar, but is known more for his unique and powerful voice.
A recent collaboration with Luka Bloom was well received, and the two came together for a sold out concert in Doolin in February, where along with some choices from either set list, they sought to re-discover and interpret a collection of well known Irish ballads.
In November 2016 the band released their album, 'Audio Incense’. This included the song Liscannor Bay, which has since become an anthem in county Clare and a fixture at sessions all over the country and beyond.
They have just begun recording a new album in Miltown Malbay, which will be released later this yea
