Siblings Caoimhe and Séamus Ó Flatharta hail from the Gaeltacht region of Conamara in County Galway. Born into a musical family in the village of An Áird Mhóir, they were exposed to traditional Irish Music at a very young age and later developed into accomplished multi instrumentalists, singers and dancers. The Ó Flatharta siblings are noted for their unique arrangements of well known Sean-Nós songs, taking a particular interest in vocal arrangement and harmonisation.

Both Caoimhe and Séamus are multi All Ireland winning performers who keep their language and heritage at the heart of all their musical endeavours.

 

I gceantar Iorras Aithnigh a rugadh ‘s a tógadh Caoimhe agus Séamus Ó Flatharta. Bhí an t-ádh orthu beirt gur tógadh iad i gceantar a bhfuil cliú agus cáil air mar gheall ar an saibhreas de cheoil tradisiúnta, amhránaíocht agus damhsa ar an tsean-nós, atá go smior i ndaonracht na háite. Tá cáil ar Chaoimhe ‘s ar Shéamus mar gheall ar an eagar nua-aimseartha a chuireann siad ar amhráin aitheanta ar an tsean-nós.

Tá a lán gradaim bainte amach acu ag leibhéal náisiúnta sa cheoil, damhsa agus fonnadóireacht. Admhaíonn siad go bhfuil tionchar ollmhór ag a dteanga, a mbaile agus a n-oidhreacht ar a gcuid ceoil.
