Aine Heslin

Hi all, my name is Áine Heslin and I’m living in Co Clare, Ireland. I grew up in west Clare listening to lots of wonderful music then moved into Limerick where I studied classical for my teen years on silver flute. After much experience in orchestras big and small, concert bands, small ensembles, pit-orchestras for musicals - I came back to continue learning traditional music in my twenties. I have kept on the silver flute despite all, seeing as it is really part of me but have endeavoured to create as trad a sound as I can and still try to this day. Having great fun playing in sessions locally with wonderful local musicians. I also compose tunes and have a CD which was released in 2014/15 called ‘The Tunes Foundry’.
