The Fiddle Case
The Fiddle Case
The Fiddle Case are Eoin O’Neill, Adam Shapiro and brothers Jon & Kieran O’Connell.
A North Clare based band bringing a new breath to many years of tradition, which is loved by their audiences in County Clare and internationally.
Eoin O’Neill has been playing his bouzouki in Doolin and around the world for over 30 years; and since double bass player & singer Jono arrived on the scene they have developed a unique and tasteful approach to backing trad music. They are joined by ace fiddler Adam Shapiro, who’s sweet tone with driving, tasty bouzouki and double bass accompaniment ensures a full sound, ranging from pure trad to spontaneous supercharged jams, with emotional and raw renditions of songs. The Fiddle Case have recently been joined by Clare man Kieran O’Connell. Kieran plays the bodhran and guitar, but is known more for his unique and powerful voice.
The Fiddle Case have gigged and toured all over Ireland and Europe, including festival gigs as diverse as Na Fir Bolg in Belgium to Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann in Ireland. Other notable gigs have been Doolin Folk Festival and supports to Christy Moore and Stockton’s Wing.
A recent collaboration with Luka Bloom was well received, and the two came together for a series of sold-out Irish concerts.
In November 2016 the band released their album – Audio Incense. This included the song Liscannor Bay, which has since become an anthem in county Clare and a fixture at sessions all over the country and beyond.
In November 2018 the band release their new album ‘Write Me A Letter’.
The 13 track long player includes 4 original songs mixed with traditional ballads, jigs and reels
