Biography

A youthful exuberance has produced Anam a respected force within the evolution of traditional Celtic music. Led by founding member, acoustic guitarist, bodhran participant, vocalist, and vocalist/songwriter Brian OhEadhra (pronounced:O’Hara), the Dublin-based and Edinburgh, Scotland-based music group has grown right into a extremely well known, internationally known, ensemble. As the band’s tunes have been in comparison to such organizations as Capercaillie as well as the music group continues to be distributed by Malcolm Dalglish and Gray Larsen, their fiery instrumentals forsake the most common accordion and fiddle strategy and only the unique mix of Dublin-born accordionist Teresa Harkin and Cornwall-born mandolin and bouzouki participant Neil Davey. Anam in the beginning came collectively in 1994 with the attempts of Dublin-born OhEadhra. Inheriting his like of music from his parents, who both sang, OhEadhra was subjected to traditional Irish music through the five years that he spent, as a young child, surviving in Newfoundland, Canada. Beginning to create tunes as an adolescent, OhEadhra’s skills had been additional sharpened while learning for any bachelor’s level in English Books and Irish folklore. Following a release of the self-titled debut recording, the group reorganized in 1995 with the help of Harkin and multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Aimee Leonard. Harkin began playing switch accordion using the Comhaltas Ceoltair Fireann (Association of Irish Music artists). Furthermore to generating a Masters level in Ethnomusicology along with a level in teaching Irish music, she worked well within the Irish Traditional Music Archive in Dublin before becoming a member of the group. Leonard, who was simply given birth to on Orkney Isle, simply north of Scotland, retains a bachelor’s level in community movie theater and has bodhran, tin whistle, piano, recorder, oboe, keyboards, and djembe. Ahead of signing up for Anam, Neil Davey toured and documented using the Cornish music group, Bucca, and the original Celtic music-meets-world-music group, Tusitala. Anam’s American debut emerged through the Folk Alliance Meeting in Memphis in 1997. Their initial “formal” concert in america, also in Memphis, sold-out three days beforehand. OhEadhra took a short hiatus through the music group to try out bodhran on Deaf Shephard’s record Synergy.
