Roisin McMullin began her musical studies at age 7 in Clare Music Makers, Ennis. Highlights of her time there include an appearance on RTE's Late Late Toy Show and frequently invitations to perform in the High Achievers Concerts of the ABRSM, who in 2003 awarded her the Philip F Walsh Memorial Prize for attaining the highest mark in the Grade 7 instrumental examinations at national level that year. She is also a former member of the National Youth Orchestra of Ireland and the Cork Symphony Orchestra. Roisin recently completed a BA (Honours) Degree in Music and Mathematical Studies in University College Cork and is currently studying violin with Professor Mariana Sirbu as part of the University of Limerick's MA in Classical Strings Performance.
Neil Boland was brought up in Yorkshire, concentrating initially on the flute before switching to main study piano at 18. He studied music in Manchester and London, gaining first class bachelor's and master's degrees before moving to Japan where he lived for several years, teaching English as well as music. Following teacher training in New Zealand, Neil taught in schools there and in Germany, leavening school teaching with frequent performances. He moved to County Clare 9 years ago and is active throughout the area as a freelance pianist and accompanist.
