Culainn Gigs - Coming Soon
"John would often find people, such as Christy Moore and Planxty, nursing hangovers lying in their sleeping bags, sometimes the wrong way round and upside down" - Live at home for John Bilek with brother Mike Harding..

Current Culainn Line Up: John Bilek (vocals, acoustic guitar), Quinny (flute, whistle), Paul Farrell (fiddle), Martin Clooney (drums), Nick Haynes (bass, didgeridoo), Dave Thom (guitar, mandolin, keyboards)

Culainn were formed in 1998 by John Bilek, the brother of Mike Harding and former member of Toss The Feathers and Rattle'n'Reel.

Joined by a host of award-winning talented Irish Mancunian musicians, Culainn are set to join Toss The Feathers as a highly celebrated Manc Irish export, fusing rock with traditional and even soul with didgeridoo.

Fiddle player Paul Farrell comes from a famous Irish Mancunian musical family, bass guitarist Nick Haynes also plays a brilliant didgeridoo, and drummer, Martin Clooney (also ex-Toss The Feathers and Rattle'n'Reel) has supported Bob Dylan, The Pogues and The Saw Doctors. Electric guitarist, Dave Thom, has also enjoyed success with Gone To Earth and Harvey's Rabbit, whose 1998 singles "Is This What You Call Change" and "Happy Town" received heavy national radio airplay.

Culainn's 1999 "The Prodigal EP" was the band's first collaboration of their talented backgrounds and its mix of traditional celtic music with anthemic rock and didgeridoo provided a unique sound that tragically went commercially undiscovered.

Flutist Sean Maguire was replaced in 1999 by Quinny who had been a close friend of the band from the beginning.
