With a list of musical awards as long as a late-night session Eoin O’Meachair is a highly accomplished banjo and whistle player. Born in the town of Carlow, on the banks of the River Barrow, Eoin is steeped in the music and culture of Ireland. A fluent Irish speaker and recipient of many National plaudits Eoin has been playing music from the age of 13.
Having grown up on a diet of festivals and fleadhs Eoin started demonstrating his talents at an early age: winning several Leinster Fleadh titles and as a member of the winning instrumental group at the All-Ireland Readoiri finals in 1989.
Since those early days this master banjo player has honed his skills to near perfection in tours which have seen him traverse the globe from the UK, Switzerland, Ethiopia and the Caribbean island of Trinidad to the far eastern countries of China and Japan.
