Newcomer of the Year – Eimear Arkins

Newcomer of the Year – Eimear Arkins
Eimear Arkins is our Newcomer of the Year here on LiveIreland. She just sent us a brand new video of her playing a set with her frequent musical partner, harpist Eileen Gannon. Eimear is originally from Claire and now lives in St. Louis in the States. We first saw her perform on tour with The Paul Brock Band, which has been a real starting point for several major stars in the trad field. You know any musician on tour with Paul Brock will be superb! She is a lovely singer, wonderful fiddle player and a truly accomplished step dancer. Triple threat time! Count us as major new fans of her and what will surely be a terrific career. Eimear Arkins–remember THAT name!
