Dan's Biography

Dan Brouder is a well-respected exponent of the West Limerick accordion style from Monagae, a parish on the outskirts of Newcastle West. He learned his music in the surrounding parishes of Ardagh, Carrigkerry and Glin on the Sliabbh Luachra boundary from accordion player Donal de Barra, Athea Co. Limerick and from flute players Francis O'Connor and Donal O'Sullivan who learned their music from Peadlin Aherne, fiddle player and Pajo Gleesen flute player from the 1930's and 40's and whose styles are strongly bedded in West Limerick roots. He continued to learn a lot of music by ear in sessions all over Ireland.

Dan plays regularly in sessions and festivals in both West Limerick and around the country. He has performed with various musicians at a number of festivals throughout the world (U.S.A., China, Russia, Spain, France, U.K., Austria, Norway, Holland, Thailand, Germany, Brussels and Italy).

He recorded with Geantraí in the early 90's with Gerry Murphy (Banjo), Francis O'Connor (Flute), Derek Hickey (Box), and Liz Doherty (Fiddle). He also recorded for the High Part of the Road, an Irish music programme presented by Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh in Knocknagree, Co. Cork with the legendary Johnny O'Leary (box), Joe Sullivan (flute) and Tim Kiely (guitar). In recent years he has made several appearances on Geantraí with West Limerick musicians Eamon Riordan (flute), Diarmuid O'Brien (fiddle) and Brian Mooney (bouzuki) and Louise Mulcahy (Flute). He also recorded as a guest musician on fiddle player Diarmuid O'Brien's Cairde Cairdin in 2008. He has played on Ceili House, Clare F.M., and Radio Kerry as well as a number of other local radio stations.

His influences down through the years have been Francis O'Connor, Donal O'Sullivan, Donnie Nolan, Johnny O'Leary, Finbar Dwyer, Dermot Byrne and fiddle players Connie O'Connell, Paddy Cronin, Tommy Peoples, James Cullinane and Tony Linnane.

Dan is a musician held in high regard among his peers for his musical integrity and the enjoyment he passes on through the music he plays and cherishes.
