Merfolk is the musical union of Aisling Lyons (harp/concertina), Seán Lyons (vocals/guitar/uilleann pipes/whistles) and Dermot Sheedy (bodhrán/percussion).
The three musicians began playing together in 2021 and have developed a refined folk sound deeply rooted in tradition yet brimming with originality.
Focusing primarily on the traditions of music and song in County Clare, Merfolk displays a reverence for the past as well as a willingness to embrace modern influences and international folk traditions.
Through soulful musicianship, thoughtful arrangements and rhythmic exploration, Merfolk breathes new life into some of the finest traditional tunes and songs of Clare’s rich canon while adding new compositions of their own.
