& Arty McGlynn
Nollaig Casey and Arty McGlynn are an extraordinary duo with a rich mix of talent and experience. They first met in Dublin in 1979, after which their musical paths crossed again and again at recording sessions, television and radio studios and on stage with Andy Irvine, Planxty, Makem & Clancy and Maura O'Connell. The more they played together the more they enjoyed each other's company and in 1984 they married.
In 1990 they recorded their first album together. Lead the Knave was released to great critical acclaim and was awarded the Belfast Telegraph Entertainment Media and Arts Award for excellence in the field of Folk Music. Together, they arranged and played music for the sound track of the feature films Moondance and Hear My Song, based on the life of singer Joseph Locke, in which they also made an appearance.
In July 1995 they released their second album, Causeway
for Tara Music. Nollaig's superb singing was featured for the first time along with nine
sets of original tunes.
