Since arriving on the stage in 2012, The Clew Bay Pipe Band has thrilled audiences all over Ireland and beyond. This exceptionally talented young group, led by renowned musician Des Cafferkey (Pipe Major) and Peter Carney (Pipe Sergeant) first attracted the attention of Matt Molloy of The Chieftains and he subsequently invited the band to perform with the legendary band in 2013. Since then the band’s rise has been meteoric. They reached a huge international audience (an estimated 75 million!) after performing the German National Anthem at the European Qualifier in 2013 at The Aviva Stadium. It was the first time the German National Anthem was performed on the bagpipes and their rendition went viral the following day. They have appeared on ‘The Late Late Show’, ‘Up For The Match’, ‘The Imelda May Show’, ‘The Gathering’ on Irish TV as well as performing live with Imelda May, The Chieftains, Damien Dempsey and many others.
