Tim Edey and Brendan Power Session

Mary Ann Kennedy with new tracks from across the globe, and a session with award winning Celtic folk duo Tim Edey and Brendan Power.

Tim Edey and Brendan Power won this year's Radio 2 Folk Awards in the Best Duo category and Tim won the coveted Musician of the Year title. Tim plays acoustic guitar and button accordion - he was brought up in the South East of England, but learned Irish traditional music from his Dublin-born mother from the age of four. Brendan Power is from New Zealand, and is one of the UK's top harmonica players, having performed with the likes of Sting, Van Morrison and Kate Bush. As a duo they have built up a reputation for powerful performances of both traditional and new music, always with a strong element of improvisation.
