Irish contemporary and traditional folk music, from Waterford, Ireland’s oldest city, and home to Liam and Eoin.
Both musicians have a wealth of experience between them as recording and performing artists across the island of Ireland, in Europe, America and beyond.
Eoin’s life has always been immersed in Irish culture and tradition. He has played banjo and whistle since childhood and is an accomplished mandolin player and vocalist. He is well known from his many international tours as a member of traditional Irish folk band, Caladh Nua, of which he was a founding member.
Liam has been a significant presence on the live music circuit over many years. His songs have been released by Polygram Records Ireland, RTE Records and Three Rivers independent recording label. His work has also been released by Cohesion Arts in America as a contributing writer, and artist on the acclaimed 1861 Project. He has made numerous TV appearances and his songs have received airplay and playlistings on national, regional and local radio stations in Ireland and overseas. Hot Press, Ireland’s leading music magazine described Liam’s songwriting in a four star album review as: “inspired by Gordon Lightfoot and Paul Simon… adding his own contemporary polish and a subtle Irish twist… reinforces Merriman as a premier league songwriter”
