Skara Brae Returns to Portland

Rising out of the Ancient Celtic Mists—It’s Skara Brae!

Skara Brae is composed of Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill, vocals and keyboards
Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill, vocals (Triona’s sister) and Dáithí Sproule, vocals and guitar.

The magic of Skara Brae’s musical ideas, and the ethereal edge in the vocal harmonies and instrumentation earned the group a unique place in traditional music when they first appeared in the late 60’s. The influence of these individuals on Irish music continues to this day.

Tríona has been a member of The Bothy Band, Relativity, Touchstone, and Nightnoise.

Her sister, Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill is a well known sean-nos singer who has collaborated often with Triona and most recently in the group, "T with the Maggies".

Many thanks to Randal Bays who is instrumental in helping to bring this group to Portland.
