Irish Traditional Music on Fiddle and Button Accordion

Annette Owens, Button Accordion and Brenda Mc Cann, Fiddle, have been playing together many years. They competed in duet competitions from a young age and played together in the Sean Nugent Ceili Band winning an All Ireland title in the U18 Ceili Band competition. More recently they performed together accompanied by Brian Mc Grath on The High Hills of Largy, a CD featuring the compositions of the late Sean Nugent, a fiddle player who had great influence on Brenda and Annette’s traditional style. They played together on Geantrai, TG4’s Traditional Music programme, and RTE's The Fleadh Programme which was recorded at the All Ireland Fleadh, Derry, 2013. They also feature on Hidden Fermanagh, a cd of Fermanagh music from the historic Gunn manuscript.
