Oisín - Oisín (1976 Ireland)

This 70s Irish folk group comprised Geraldine MacGowan (b. Dublin, Eire; vocals, bodhran) and, joining in the early 80s, Anne Conroy (accordion). Oisín’s 1987Winds Of Change, on Tara Records, was largely credited to MacGowan and Conroy but were supplemented by Davy Spillane (uillean pipes, low whistle), Tom McDonagh (bouzouki), Brian O’Connor (flute, whistle), Maire Bhreathnach (fiddle), Gerry O’Connor (fiddle), Steve Cooney (bass, synthesizer), Noel Bridgeman (percussion), and Shay MacGowan (vocals, guitar).

In the 80s MacGowan, with her husband Shay, opened an Irish pub and music venue in Hannover, Germany. She continues to peform and record into the new millennium. In 1990 Conroy married the respected accordianist, Joe Burke (b. 1939), and togther they perform as a duo.

Thanks for publishing the records of Oisin. The band was my first discovery of Ireland's music. The way to Planxty and the others?
