In a crowded field of outstanding Irish fiddle players and interpreters of traditional music Colm Mac Con Iomaire is unique.

His voice is unmistakably his own and his music bears distinctive creative hallmarks which have as much to do with his personality and character as with his impressive technical mastery, musical authority and exquisitely expressive playing.

Colm recently performed as part of the 2016 Centenary concerts in the National Concert Hall. He performed with Paul Muldoon as part of the literary celebration and with Glen Hansard, as part of ‘Imagining HOME’.

He was commissioned to write a piece of music ‘SOLASTA’ ( meaning ‘Shining’ ) which he performed for the President of Ireland last month in The Irish Writers Centre. This piece was written to accompany specially written poems from six of Ireland’s leading Poets.

His second Album ‘And Now The Weather’ has been critically acclaimed (album of the week in The Irish Times) and was recently shortlisted for the Choice Music Prize ‘album of the year’.

“These are tunes that are effortlessly cinematic, conjuring images of weather-beaten coastlines and vast green expanses… a consistently beautiful and frequently incandescent collection” – The Irish Times (Album of the Week)

On the first album ‘The Hare’s Corner’ -

“I was taken somewhere else. It's just a beautiful piece of mood music. If you're looking for an inheritor for Astral Weeks, this is it.”

Billy Bragg

His work in TV, Film and Theatre has allowed him to progress and mature as an orchestrator of his own compositions. Colm is currently working on his second Movie feature soundtrack, which is due for release later this year.

Against a backdrop of global war and destruction of the natural environment ‘ And Now The Weather ‘ reprises the plea of the hare for creativity and space. Somewhere in the middle of all this madness there is music and Colm Mac Con Iomaire .
