My new album, Leo Mac Namara, is available!

It is the culmination of many years of playing flute and tin whistle in both Ireland and the U.S. It captures my respect for the older Clare musicians from whom I learned many of the tunes on the album.  It showcases both duet playing with Triona Marshall on harp and several solo tracks.  Originally from Portlaoise, Triona was principal harpist with the RTE Concert Orchestra for five years. Since 2003, she has performed solely on the Irish harp, playing with The Chieftains on tours throughout the world and as a solo and ensemble performer. Triona and I first met and played together at the 2013 Masters of Tradition festival in Bantry, Co. Cork.
