Eileen Gannon and Eimear Arkins have been lighting up the Irish music scene in St. Louis for the past several years.
Eileen, a St. Louis native, is one of the top Irish harp players in the world. She has won numerous accolades including the highly coveted Senior Harp title at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann (World Irish Music Championships). She has a bachelor’s degree in Music Performance from St. Louis University and a master’s degree in Ethnomusicology from University of Limerick. In summer 2017, Eileen launched her debut solo CD, The Glory Days Are Over.
Eimear is an award-winning singer and fiddle player from County Clare with eleven solo Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann titles to her credit. She has performed throughout the US and Ireland with acclaimed bands like Cherish The Ladies, Téada, The Paul Brock Band, Brú Ború and The Nashville Celts. She has toured extensively with Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann in Ireland, Britain, North America and Canada. Eimear’s debut album, What’s Next? was released early summer 2018.
