Dean Warner hails from Leeds, England, a city steeped in a strong tradition of Irish Music. Encouraged by this vibrant traditional Irish music scene and inspired by the great Piano Accordion player John Ferguson, Dean has been playing the Piano Accordion from the age of eight. It was through his association with Leeds Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann that he developed a deep passion for ‘the music’.
In 2001 Dean moved to Northern Ireland and now lives near Lurgan, County Armagh where music continues to be a major part of his life. He won the All Ireland Senior Piano Accordion title in Letterkenny (2005) and toured with Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann throughout Ireland (2006), Britain (2007) and America/Canada (2007).
He also performed at the Asturias Music Festival, Spain (2006) and the Shetland Accordion and Fiddle festival (2008). Dean teaches, adjudicates, tutors at Scoil Éigse and other workshops, and is a regular figure at sessions in Armagh and Tyrone.
