Len Graham in duet with the multi-talented singer, musician and sean-nós dancer, Brian Hart. In 1971 Len won the Senior All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann traditional singing competition. In 2002, Brian Hart added his name to the long list of noted singers who have also been awarded this prestigious prize, a list which includes Joe Heaney and Frank Harte.
In 2008 Len Graham was the recipient of the US Irish Music Award in the Sean-Nós Singing category and in 2009 Brian Hart collected this prize in the same category.
Together, Brian and Len bring a galaxy of talent to their performances, which encompass the many aspects of the Irish traditional art of sean-nós singing in both English and Irish Gaelic as well as dance music on the concertina and whistle, puirt-à-beul (mouth-music) and sean-nós dancing.
