Claudia Schwab is an originally Austrian fiddle player and composer, who has been described as 'one of the most creative artists on the Irish music scene today' (Dr. Mel Mercier- Irish World Academy Limerick). Claudia amalgamates different traditions and styles, such as traditional Austrian, Irish, Classical Indian and Eastern European folk music, in her own, very unique way.

Claudia writes and tours her own works regularly (Claudia Schwab Quartet, Solo) whilst also featuring on numerous recordings and collaborations with a range of cross-genre artists including Seamie O'Dowd, Cathy Jordan and Brian McDonagh (Dervish), Seanan Brennan and Dee Armstrong (Kíla), Austrian string-trio Netnakisum, Matija Solce (Ethno in Transit), Nick Roth (Yurodny), Duke Special, Pt. Sukhdev Prasad Mishra, Iarla Ó Lionáird, Colin Dunne, Padraig Meehan, Nina Hynes, Niwel Tsumbu, Matthias Schriefl, Hannah James, Kate Young and many more.

Originally from Cavan, Rodney Lancashire has lived in Sligo for many years and is an excellent bouzouki, mandolin and concertina player. He is a stalwart of the Sligo traditional music session scene as a really versatile multi-instrumentalist.
