The Boruma Trio is a musical collaboration featuring fiddle player Eileen O’ Brien from Nenagh in North Tipperary, accordion player Andrew MacNamara from Tulla, East Clare and on piano and tin whistle Dr. Geraldine Cotter from Ennis. It is a unique and exciting musical ensemble, which successfully unites the two stylistic musical traditions of East County Clare and North County Tipperary; exploring the C#/D and B/C accordion playing styles through creative, empathic musical arrangement. The Boruma Trio derives its name from Brian Boru High King of Ireland, who was born at the Fort of Kincora, also known as Béal Boruma.
The title of their debut album Gléas refers to the effect that musical keys have on the interpretation and playing of Irish traditional music.
