Irish Musician Composer Percussionist
Hello, Dia duit, and thank you for visiting! We are currently updating the site, but you are welcome to browse and look, listen and experience Éamonn’s music, drumming and projects.
Éamonn Cagney is Ireland’s most accomplished hand drum percussionist. Growing up on the Atlantic coast of Donegal, traditional Irish music, language, landscape and culture surrounded him along with Hip Hop, U2, metal, electronic music and anything else he could get his hands on! In his late teens his focus turned to exploring and learning to play the ancient rhythms of West African traditional drumming and he has been exploring rhythm from ever since. He has many original music projects and his drumming is a flowing, fluidic style that allows him to move between musical worlds and expresses his deep love of the universal heartbeat inside all music.
