Since its arrival on the stage in 2012, The Clew Bay Pipe Band has excited audiences all over Ireland and beyond. This exceptionally talented young group led by renowned musician Des Cafferkey (Pipe Major) and Peter Carney (Pipe Sergeant) firstly attracted the attention of Matt Molloy of The Chieftains. Matt invited the band to perform with The Chieftains in 2013 and since then the band’s rise has been meteoric. The Clew Bay Pipe Band reached a huge international audience when it performed the German National Anthem at the European Qualifier in 2013 at The Aviva Stadium to an audience of over 75 million. It was the first time the German National Anthem was performed on the bagpipes and their rendition of the song went viral across Germany the following day. Having appeared on ‘The Late Late Show’, ‘Up For The Match’, ‘The Imelda May Show’ , ‘The Gathering’ and numerous times on Irish TV, the band has also performed live with Imelda May, The Chieftains, Mundy, Damien Dempsey and Jack L.
