Colm Mac Con Iomaire

Colm Mac Con Iomaire is traditionally known as being one of the founding members of The Frames. However in recent times he's been carving out a name for himself as a solo artist, with two critically acclaimed albums under his belt, and as a composer for TV, film and theatre. In a crowded field of outstanding Irish fiddle players and interpreters of traditional music Colm is unique. His music bears distinctive creative hallmarks which have as much to do with his personality and character as with his impressive technical mastery, musical authority and exquisitely expressive playing. His second album And Now The Weather was shortlisted for the Choice Music Prize ‘album of the year’ (2015).

“These are tunes that are effortlessly cinematic, conjuring images of weather-beaten coastlines and vast green expanses… a consistently beautiful and frequently incandescent collection.” (**** The Irish Times)

“A beautiful collection that cements Mac Con Iomaire’s position as one of the finest Irish musicians and composers of his age.” (Hot Press)
