Mairéad Hurley

Mairéad grew up in Ballymote, Co. Sligo, Ireland in a musical family, and began playing at a young age, starting with the whistle and flute, and later taking up the concertina. She was the winner of the All-Ireland senior concertina title at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann, cementing her status as one of the up and coming talents in Irish concertina playing. She has performed on stages and taught concertina master classes across Europe, North America and in Australia and New Zealand.
