Damian McKee, from Dunloy, Co. Antrim, is a top exponent on button accordian. In the 90’s he toured Ireland, Britain and America with Comhaltas Ceolteori Eireann and over the last few years he has continued to travel worldwide as his music became popular within Irish dance circles. He is a prolific composer and many of his works feature in the Beoga repertoire.
Through his teaching, Damian’s influence on traditional accordian playing in the North of Ireland is far-reaching. He is in frequent demand for workshops throughout Ireland, as well as the USA and Canada.
