EAMONN DeBARRA is the Young Traditional Musician of the Year. He tells SIOBHAN LONG why he isn t strictly trad and why it s important to play the #20 gigs
22 and he s got the world at his feet. Garnering laurels and accolades from the establishment and mould-breakers alike. Newly crowned Young Traditional Musician of the Year, Iamonn De Barra is far from nonchalant about such honours. Canny enough to recognise the risk that those who come to praise might just as easily bury him, he carries the mantle with pride as well as more than a tincture of reticence.
Iamonn De Barra plays in The Chancery Inn on Wednesdays with Oismn McAuley and Shane MacGowan.
