Éamonn now lives in Edinburgh but is originally from Ireland (Dublin/Roscommon). On his debut solo CD, ‘Through the Round Window’, he plays banjo, guitars, and mandolin with a few friends including Grammy Award winner Alison Brown, Dermot Byrne and Michael McGoldrick. fRoots called it “utterly stunning”. He has also performed and recorded with a vast array of people from many different music scenes including Tommy Peoples, Bèla Fleck, Jerry Douglas, Sinéad O’Connor, Tim O’Brien, the Wrigley Sisters, and Russell’s House. Éamonn plays with Salsa Celtica, Treacherous Orchestra and multi-award winning Kris Drever.
Their debut duo CD, ‘Honk Toot Suite’, was described by Songlines as ‘a breath of fresh air’ with its ‘mutually attuned musicianship of the first order’ and ‘its immense yet ultra-supple sophistication’. ‘Storymap’, the follow-up to this, was BBC Music Magazine’s five star Album of the Month in Sept 2103. Two EPs (released in 2012 & 2014) make up the full collection.
Éamonn’s most recent recording with Treacherous Orchestra, ‘Grind’, released Feb 2015, was nominated for Scottish Album of the Year and won Best Album at the Scottish Folk Awards. eamonncoyne.com
