One of Celtic music's great concertina players, Niall Vallely has established himself as one of the most original and distinctive voices in Irish music. On Buílle, Niall is accompanied by his brother Caoimhin Vallely (ex-North Cregg) on piano, Paul Meehan (Lúnasa) on bouzouki and Brian Morrissey on bodhran. Between them they create a contemporary, bright and swinging sound, with almost all the tune sets written by Niall.
