The Bonny Men
Barry Lyons: (Guitar/Synth/Lead Vocals on "King's Arrival")
Core founding member and one part of the Lyons brothers in the Bonny Men, Barry started the band in 2011 with a vision to create an ensemble of musicians that would take the deep rooted and unique tradition of Irish music and respectfully bring it to a new audience for the modern era.

Conor Lyons: (Bodhrán/Bouzouki/12 String guitar/Lead Vocals on "Sun Is Burning")
Conor, the younger brother of Barry, joined the Bonny Men in 2011 just before they recorded their successful self-titled debut album. He has won the World Bodhrán Championships twice and toured extensively across the globe with many different musical acts and groups. Most notably, in March or 2019, Conor performed in the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York, with the UCD Choral Scholars.

Moss Landman: (Flute/Tin Whistle)
Moss began his music career through his local Comhaltas Branch in Dublin and mastered his craft on the flute by playing and performing in the hot-bed of traditional music that was Coláiste Eoin in Stillorgan. A regular musician in the Dublin music circles, Moss is also a highly regarded uilleann piper and whistle player and is a driving force behind the music of The Bonny Men.

Natalie Ní Chasaide: (Piano/Harmonium/Fiddle/Vocals)
Natalie, who is the younger sister of Maitiú, comes from a family steeped in traditional Irish music and performance, the Ó Casaide family. She joined The Bonny Men just after the band formed in 2011 and since then, Natalie's musical abilities and arrangements have shone through and her unique style of playing has shaped the sound of the band to what it is today.

Maitiú Ó Casaide (Uilleann Pipes/Tin Whistle/Fiddle/Lead Vocals on "An tSean Bhean Bhocht")
Older brother of Natalie, Maitiú began playing music at an early age and mastered his craft on the Pipes through the Piper's Club in Dublin City. Maitiú has since become one of the most recognisable players of the Uilleann Pipes today and has proved his talent by being awarded the prestigious Young Musician of the Year Award in 2015. Maitiú brings a wealth of knowledge of traditional Irish music to the band and his tunes and performances are always of the highest standard.

Adam Whelan (Bouzouki/Lead Vocals on "Tunnel Tigers")
Adam, a relatively latecomer to Irish music, did not start playing music until a chance meeting with Barry Lyons during their University days in UCD. Whilst a student in Coláiste Eoin secondary school, Adam took up Irish music while studying with Barry and was immediately hooked on the music and became driven to perform. Adam is an integral member of The Bonny Men, working closely on arrangements and harmonies as well as undertaking a managerial role steering the band in broadening the appeal of the music to a wider and international audience.

Turlough Chambers (Fiddle/Tin Whistle)
Turlough Chambers has been playing traditional Irish music together from a very early age, as music is steeped in his family's name. Turlough is one of the finest exponents of traditional Irish music on the fiddle in Ireland today and his playing is always exceptional and exciting. Along with the other members of the band, his talent helps create the sound of what The Bonny Men is today.
