Eoin Duignan is a gifted musician and composer and has lived in Dingle since 1979. His enchanting and uplifting melodies have touched the hearts of listeners, both young and old, down through the years. The casual listener will be drawn as if by magic to the music's inner core; entranced not only by the shapes and turns of melody but also well-spring of emotions that the pieces portray.

Eoin has developed his own distinctive musical style, that is original in a traditional mode. It ranges from the haunting slow airs to the lively percussive reels and jigs which have enchanted audiences worldwide and set them dancing wherever he has played.

He is a renowned uilleann piper and low whistle player influenced at an early age by the master pipers Seamus Ennis and Leo Rowsome.


His childhood summers were spent in the west Cork gaeltacht of Cúil Aodha where his passion for the language, singing and dancing traditions flourished. In the late nineteeen seventies he toured extensively throughout Europe as part of the legendary folk-group The Wild Geese.

He has been based in Dingle since 1979 with his partner Ilonka and their family, and continues to work and tour his music both at home and abroad.

Eoin has released three very highly critically acclaimed CDs of his own compositions: Coumíneol, Ancient Rite and Lumina. He is accompanied on all three CDs by many of Irelands leading musicians including ,Steve Cooney, Robbie Overson, Gerry O`Beirne,Robbie Harris, Liam Bradley, Liam Ó Maonlaí, Máire Breathnach, Keith Donald, Trevor Hutchinson,James Blennerhassett.
