The Unwanted are a trio of Sligo-based musicians whose work is inspired by, explores and reflects the combined musical traditions from Ireland to Appalachia and beyond...

The Band:

Roscommon born Cathy Jordan, lead singer for acclaimed group Dervish, moves effortlessly and with soaring voice between Sean-ns, Appalachian ballad and contemporary folksong, lending rich accompaniment on bodhrn and tenor guitar.

Sligo native Samus ODowd (guitar, fiddle) grew up steeped in the tradition of Sligo fiddling, early on expanding his repertoire to include the New World traditions and today he is as accomplished playing Blues on slide guitar as he is playing jigs and reels.

Rick Epping (harmonica, concertina, banjo, jaw harp), a native of California, has been moving back and forth between Ireland and the United States for over 40 years and has been playing the music of both lands since childhood.

"a gorgeous soundscape" (Scotland on Sunday)

"an attractive array of material from both sides of the pond, incorporating elements of country, folk, Irish, jug band, blues and Appalachia songs.... the trio deliver with passion and depth" (Hot Press)

"this masterpiece has you submerged in a journey of cowboys, drovers and music thats so real you can taste and smell it." (Irish Music Magazine)



Finfolk mix the Celtic music influences of Ireland, the Scottish Borders and Hungary. Featuring Tom Roche (button-accordion), Kenn Clark (guitar/vocals) and Jani Lang (fiddle) the music they produce knows few boundaries with a strong emphasis on self-penned tunes and improvisation.
