Maighread and Tríona
Ní Dhomhnaill

Sisters Maighread and Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill belong to a renowned singing family originally from the Donegal Gaeltacht. Their unique traditional singing style and repertoire have come down to them through generations of the Ó Domhnaill family. Added to this are their distinctive unison and harmonic interpretations of Donegal songs, and their fluent and accomplished singing to instrumental accompaniment. Tríona (who was a member of one of the most influential groups in contemporary Irish traditional music, the Bothy Band) is a skilled keyboard player of piano, clavinet and harpsichord, and also a composer and arranger of traditional material. With their brother, the late Mícheál – a fine singer and instrumental player – they formed the seminal traditional group Skara Brae in the late 1960s. It was through this group and its one recording, the eponymous Skara Brae – now a classic – that the regional songs of their native Donegal were introduced to a wider audience both in Ireland and abroad.
