The Máirtín de Cógáin Project is led by its eponym, Máirtín de Cógáin, a performer of extraordinary talent. Crowned All-Ireland Storytelling Champion twice over, Máirtín says that telling stories is his highest joy in life. A superb singer, dancer, and bodhrán (Irish drum) player, he has gathered a group of the finest Irish-American musicians around him. Together, this group brings the story of de Cógáin’s native Cork to an appreciative international following.
Máirtín de Cógáin has performed across his native Ireland, all over the U.S., and beyond. An infectious personality, he easily commands the attention of his audience. If you are lucky enough to catch him spinning a few tales, you are in for a treat.
