Artist Intro: Colm Mac Con Iomaire

Colm Mac Con Iomaire (IRE) is a widely recognized and acknowleged composer and fiddler whose work extends from the studio to the stage to the silver screen. He is also a member of the Dublin rock band The Frames.

I find his his solo outings most enjoyable as they are adventurous and imaginative and brilliantly executed hybrids of Irish roots, instrumental ”genre-less” composition and sometimes very jazzy passages. It’s lively, it’s original, it’s great for anyone who really likes to pay attention but, in my experience, works fine also in more casual listening.

His latest album is a soundtrack to the movie Dare To Be Wild. Thankfully, although obviously composed for that specific purpose, it retains much of what I like about his music.
