Here follows biographies on the three tutors.

************************************
Kevin Glackin comes from a family whose name is
synonymous with traditional Irish fiddle playing. His
father, Tom, came from Donegal and the style
associated with this region is evident to all when
one hears Kevin play. He has toured extensively to
sell-out tours in Europe, Asia and the United States,
and a few years ago released an album titled Northern
Lights with his brother Seamus. The album was met with
huge critical acclaim and is available on the Gael
Linn label.

Kevin has also guested on many albums with artists
such as Davy Spillane and Mary Black, and has appeared
on numerous television and radio programmes. Kevin
also teaches to undergraduates in Dublins Institute
of Technology at Rathmines and regularly features at
the celebrated Willie Clancy Summer School and at the
Fiddlers Week in Glencolmcille, County Donegal in the
North West of Ireland.

Conal O'Gráda was born in County Cork, Ireland into a
family steeped in Irish music and Irish culture. At a
very early age his musical talent began to shine
through, and under the expert tutelage of Michael O
Riabhaigh he won several of the prestigious 'All
Ireland' music titles on both the tin whistle and the
concert flute. While in his early teens his musical
maturity established him as one of Ireland's leading
flute players, resulting in sell-out concerts
throughout Europe and the United States.

In 1991, Conal released a solo album titled Top Of
Coom, which was hailed by critics as a masterpiece. He
has graced the stage with the giants of Irish music,
such as Frankie Gavin, Matt Malloy, Seamus Tansey and
Arty McGlynn, and has appeared on numerous television
and radio programmes and currently lectures students
studying music at the prestigious National University
of Ireland, Cork.

Son of the great piper and teacher, Micheál
Ó'Riabhaigh, Eoin Ó'Riabhaigh has been playing the
uilleann pipes for over thirty years and has enjoyed
considerable demand throughout Europe and the United
States as both performer and teacher. He has won
All-Ireland performing titles at each age category and
has numerous television and radio performances to his
credit.

In addition to extensive travelling, Eoin has played
and recorded with many of the great names in music,
including Dolores Keane (Ireland), Mary Black
(Ireland), Tom Russell (United States) and the great
Iris Demente (United States). Today he enjoys teaching
both at home and abroad and has recently released a
long awaited debut album entitled Tiomnacht (Handed
On). The album has since enjoyed huge success as
demonstrated below.

"..and we, the listening public, are now fortunate to
be able to hear one of the finest piping albums ever
made." Irish Music Magazine Nov. 2000

"..wild, down-and-dirty, piping." Mic Moroney, Irish
Times, August 2000

" His technique and flexibility are almost
incredible...if the sound of the pipes is your thing,
then this is a five star must for you".  Irish Music
Magazine Oct. 2000
