Riona O Madagain & Matt Griffin

Ríona Ó Madagáin with Matt Griffin




Ríona began playing music as a teenager and moved to the musical town of Dingle to surround herself with inspiring musicians and persue her songwriting and performing. Ríona soon became involved in the World famouse “Other Voices” festival in Dingle and performed her own material in Dingle, Derry, London and New York. Drawing inspiration from artists like Nina Simone, Glen Hansard and Joni Mitchell, Ríona’s songwriting will grab your attention and hold it long after the concert is over. Having shared a stage with artists such as Sharon Shannon, Maria Doyle Kennedy and Jack L, Ríona is ready to bring her unique sound to Germany.


Ríona will be joined on guitar and bass by Matt Griffin. Matt has toured extensively around the world with with a variety of Irish folk artists including Teresa Horgan (The Outside Track, Fullset), Méabh Begley, Séamus Begley, Dezi Donnelly (Toss the Feathers, Michael McGoldrick band), Niamh Ní Charra and the Chieftans. He has played music with Ríona since she first arrived in Dingle and the pair have a great musical chemistry and look forward to bringing it to Germany!
