Hello and welcome to our blog. We plan to update this blog at least once a week. More often if possible.

Gerry Hegarty & Claire Watts, thats us, are Irish Traditional Musicians based in Miltown Malbay West Clare Ireland. We have been performing together for many years as a duet and with others as necessary.We love to play our music for people especially as a performance for an attentive audience. We have 60 years experience of performing in public between us. Thats not bad cos we’re still quiet young!!!

We are involved with Ceili Bands. Including at one time the Micheal Sexton Ceili Band and currently Ceili Swing Ceili Band and the Lackagh Ceili Band. For more information, see our website at
