Michael McGoldrick Band Biography

Michael McGoldrick Band

A co-founder of Flook and Lúnasa, and a linchpin of Capercaillie’s line-up since 1998, Manchester-born flute/whistle and uilleann pipes maestro Michael McGoldrick has in recent years performed around the globe in ex-Dire Straits legend Mark Knopfler’s band – including a tour with both Knopfler and Bob Dylan. Despite this lengthy list of stellar collaborations, though – also including Youssou N’Dour, Zakir Hussain, John Cale and the Transatlantic Sessions – his true genius lies in his own trailblazing work as a player and composer, brilliantly showcased on his three solo albums to date. On top of all his other projects he also also fronts the exhilarating Michael McGoldrick Band which will be out on the road in 2016 for more show stopping performances.
