Biography


Doon Ceili Band (Brief Biography courtesy of the Artist's site, 2006)

Formed in 2003, The Doon Cil Band took shape around a group of the top local musicians from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota. With a mind for cohesion and empathy, the band was composed of individuals and pairings that had worked together in the past. This enabled the band to come together quickly and produce a unified and rhythmic sound.
Taken from a deep experience with cil bands, Paddy O'Brien's vision involved a cil band with a strong flute section. So it began with three flutes; next, three fiddles were added to balance; then piano to enhance the rhythm. Paddy also selected a repertoire based on his passionate study of the music. There is a distinctive Clare influence to many of the tunes, with Mrs. Crotty and Micho Russell as tune sources. There is also a Sligo influence with tunes from Jim Morrison and others. Above all, the music bears the stamp of Paddy himself, and that is accentuated by the contribution of styles and energies of the individual players in the band. _
