Event description

Description

Acclaimed as “one of the great contemporary folk voices of Ireland”. Tommy O’Sullivan, “stellar guitarist”, has remained one of the hidden treasures of traditional Irish music for many years. He has toured throughout North America and Europe, appearing at many major venues and festivals. Tommy has always kept an active recording schedule having recorded three albums as a member of Sliabh Notes and a duet album with Bothy Band piper, Paddy Keenan as well as two solo albums ‘Legacy’ and ‘Song Ablaze’

Saundra O’Sullivan is from Houston, Texas with native American roots. During high school and college she sang in many choirs and was a featured soloist. She joined the Bayou City Pipes and Drums, bagpipe band, as a tenor drummer and competed in many marching band competitions throughout the greater U.S.A. Through a family member she became interested in traditional Irish music, which led her to attend an annual Irish music retreat in Midlothian, Texas in 2007. There she met Tommy O’Sullivan who was one of the instructors visiting from Ireland. As they explored singing together they discovered her alto harmonies to be a perfect match for his tenor lead vocals, adding a fertile texture to the overall sound. She has now become a very welcomed addition to the vibrant local music scene in Dingle, Ireland, where Saundra and Tommy now live since their wedding in Houston in March 2010. Together they own and operate O'Sullivan's Courthouse Pub, the oldest and one of the most popular pubs in all of Dingle!
