Andrew Mc Namara

Artists Profile

Andrew Mac Namara’s individual style of playing traditional Irish music is both true to his heart and to the area in which he was reared. He was born in Tulla, Co. Clare, learning the strong traditions of East Clare music from older players such as Joe Bane and Bill Malley. In his late teens he joined the highly esteemed Tulla Ceili Band in which he toured both nationally and internationally for a number of years. Andrew has the knack of electrifying audiences and this is evident on both his collaborative projects and his solo albums. He was a member of the group Skylark and recorded one albums with them before forming his own band called ‘The Lahawns’ and recorded two further albums with them (‘Live at Lena’s’ and ‘Live at Winkles’). He has also recorded an album with his sister Mary Mac Namara (called ‘Open Heart’). His solo albums include ‘the Dawn’ and ‘No Compromise’. More recently he has toured in the UK, Europe, North America, Australia and Japan. His solo performances and collaborations are unique and listeners are never disappointed
