Oisín began playing fiddle in Clare at a young age. After moving to Sligo in 1989, he developed a deep interest in the playing style of the Sligo region. Founder of the group Téada in 2001, Oisín is also a regular solo performer and teacher.  Daithí is widely regarded as one of the finest button accordion players of his generation. Steeped in the rich musical heritage of his native county Sligo, he brings an expressive mix of old and new tunes played with an attention to detail conduit to past masters of Irish traditional music.
