Formed in 2006, the group are all good friends, living in Co. Waterford. It is unusual in that it has both “youth” and “experience” due to the diversity of age! Dúnaill were the first Irish musical group to be invited to participate in the Canadian “March Hare Festival”, sharing the stage with international singer-songwriters Ron Hynes, Kevin Collins, Kevin Evans and Pamela Morgan. They regularly perform in charity fundraisers, local festivals and concerts, more recently in the Lacfadio Hearne Japenese gardens, Tramore, Music at the Museum, Waterford and the Anne Valley Festival, Dunhill, Co. Waterford.
“Dúnaill” perform popular modern and contemporary Irish and international folk ballads. They arrange the songs in 3 and 4 part harmony and are multi-instrumentalists. (Harp, flute, whistle, harmonica, bodhrán, guitar, piano and violin). They released their debut album, “Slán Abhaile,” in August 2006 and their second album “Saltwater Joys” in 2012. The past couple of years has seen them writing, recording and performing their own material (see SoundCloud and Youtube). Their style has been described as Celtic-folk with a classical twist! They are currently preparing for a tour of Newfoundland in August 2016.
