Ciaran O’Kane is from Cushendun in the glens of Antrim. His parents both play music and sing and so he became involved in the local music and singing sessions. This recording includes traditional songs along with many of his own compositions, which although traditional in style have more eclectic influences such as Ray Charles, Tracy Chapman, Patsy Cline, Séan Keane, Dolores Keane, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Paul Brady etc. There are also a few tunes on the accordion, which Ciaran has been playing since he was a young child.

The CD was recorded at Séan Og Graham’s studio in Portglenone. Ciaran is joined by Gary Graham, a renowned guitar player from the band Runabay and on percussion by Eamon Graham, from Glenariffe. Seamus O’Kane the well known bodhran maker and player from Dungiven is also featured on some of the tracks as well as Michael Sands of the Sands Family on guitar. Bass is provided by Trevor Hutchinson (Lúnasa) and Séan Og has arranged and played a variety of instruments on many of the tracks as well.

The night will include warm up from Sligo singer/songwriter Siobhan O’Donnell — Siobhan is a great musician and singer with a great family tradition of music and song. The Loughgiel school of dancing will also be performing, champion Irish dancers who last year were the only performers ever to achieve a perfect score at the Eisteddfodd world dance competition in Wales.

In all the launch night will be the culmination of the last few years of work making the record, and will include all the friends and musicians Ciaran has worked with along the way.
