‘What hits you immediately is the richness of O’Kanes voice’ ~ BBC Music
Damien O’Kane is earning a growing reputation as one of the finest Irish players on the scene today, winning accolades as a singer and banjo player and focusing on songs from his native Northern Ireland. He is probably best known for his work with Shona Kipling and Flook but has recently been a full-time member of Kate Rusby’s band.
Damien’s career has so far earned him credit as a creative and exciting musician as well as an excellent teacher of folk and traditional music. His banjo playing has been widely praised and his work with Shona Kipling, accordion player extraordinaire, earned them both a Folk Award nomination in 2007 with their gigs spanning all over the world. Having spent a year with Anglo-Irish super group Flook, his banjo playing took him to many more different venues. Now with a solo career ahead and his work with Kate Rusby, he is sure to continue his success and further his reputation as a superb singer and instrumentalist.
