Michelle, Louise and Mick Mulcahy
Musical families are often the backbone of multi-generational continuity within that global community, and no musical family today is more impressive in upholding the best principles of the tradition than the Mulcahy’s of Abbeyfeale, West Limerick.
Mick, Louise and Michelle Mulcahy play a vast array of instruments between them but it's the sweetness and tunefulness of their ensemble playing that is most striking. Mick plays accordion, melodeon and concertina, whilst Louise plays flute, uilleann pipes and whistle. Michelle’s vast array of instruments include harp, concertina, accordion, fiddle, melodeon and piano.
They have an unmistakable, infectious sound and their skill and enthusiasm comes from a lifetime of playing together.
