Merfolk is the musical union of Aisling Lyons (harp/concertina), Seán Lyons (vocals/guitar/uilleann pipes/whistles) and Dermot Sheedy (bodhrán/percussion). The three began playing together in 2021 and have refined a folk sound that is deeply-rooted in tradition yet brimming with originality. Focusing primarily on the traditions of music and song in County Clare, their music displays a reverence for the past as well as a willingness to embrace modern influences and international folk traditions. Through soulful musicianship, thoughtful arrangements and rhythmic exploration, Merfolk breathe new life into some of the finest traditional tunes and songs of Clare’s rich canon while also adding new compositions of their own.

Aisling Lyons  harp/concertina
Seán Lyons  vocals/guitar/uilleann pipes/whistles

Presented in association with glór, with funding from Creative Ireland Clare.
