Inishowen Traditional Music Project presents

Paula & Melanie Houton & Cineál Óg

Donegal sisters, Paula and Melanie Houton from the Inishowen Peninsula, are two of the finest musicians of their generation. Bringing the traditional pairing of fiddle and flute/whistle to a contemporary audience, “they are both masters of their instruments with impeccable taste in their music” according to Altan’s Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh.

Their musical journey has brought them throughout Ireland and further afield, with international performances in countries such as India, Romania and Syria. They have played at festivals including Celtic Connections, Ennis Trad Festival and Frankie Kennedy Winter School. Paula and Melanie have enjoyed success in competitions at both national and international levels and they have been featured regularly on television programmes such as Trad ar Fad (BBC), Geantraí (TG4) and Fleadh Cheoil (RTÉ).

This concert is a celebration of their debut album A Snapshot in Time which is a culmination of old and new traditional tunes including several of their own compositions. Special guests on the album include Michael McCague, Ryan Molloy, Eamon Murray, Ruban Bada and Dónal O’Connor, some of whom will be joining them on stage for what’s sure to be a real musical treat.

Cineál Óg is a young ensemble brought together by Inishowen Traditional Music Project (ITMP). The group was formed in 2018 to highlight the wealth of young traditional musicians emerging in Inishowen. As musicians progress through the ensemble, they are given a platform to develop stage craft, explore arranging music and work on newly commissioned music.
