The Niall Toner Band
Co. Carlow, Ireland
The Niall Toner Band hails from the Blackstairs mountain region of Ireland, founded by Niall Toner in 2001. An Irish bluegrass act, their unique sound is a rich blend of traditional, acoustic country music and bluegrass, with a distinctive Celtic twist. You'll hear them play original songs and instrumentals at their next performance!
The Niall Toner Band has a diverse set ranging from contemporary, up-tempo Western Swing pieces like 'Mood Swing', to inspirational gospel-style songs like 'Walk on Water', and the haunting Bill Monroe tribute 'The Master's Resting Place'.
Founder Niall Toner is widely regarded as one of Ireland's leading experts on bluegrass and American country music. He brings this knowledge of music through his live performances, various workshops and his radio shows. Niall's songs have been recorded by many artists including Bill Wyman [Rolling Stones], The Nashville Bluegrass Band, Albert Lee, Special Consensus, Keith Sewell, The Swanson Family, The Fleadh Cowboys, and more. Niall's lifetime contribution to the wider World of Country Music was honoured by the CMA in Nashville in 2003, when he was nominated for a Global Artist Award.
