Siobhán, a multi-instrumentalist plays Bodhran, fiddle, guitar and is a very talented vocalist and also the holder of many all-Ireland titles. Siobhán has toured the world extensively with a number of traditional bands and Irish dance shows and is currently promoting her new band “The Spinning Jennys”. She has performed at the festival on a number of occasions, both as a session musician and more notability a member of the young traditional band “Cruinniu”, who played a fantastic set at the main festival gig in 2007. The atmosphere created when father and daughter share the stage is like no other ... a great performance filled with music, song, stories and even dance!!
