The Ne’er Duwels are very pleased to announce the release of their long awaited debut album, titled “Ne’er Duwels”. The official release celebration will be on May 17 at 3PM and will be held at an exclusive private residence in South Pasadena as part of The Carriage House Concert Series. For more information and to make reservations contact Chris Wilson or (818) 389-8512.

The band members include well known local Irish singer Ken O’Malley, virtuoso Irish uilleann piper Patrick D’Arcy, multi string instrumentalist/producer Bryan Dobbs and Grammy winning drummer/percussionist Forrest Robinson.

The band began two years ago when Ken enlisted Bryan and Pat to join him for a weekend of shows in a casino near Las Vegas and it was there that the magic began. Later, Forrest met Ken at one of his solo concerts, another flame was lit and the four became the Ne’er Duwels.

Their debut album features traditional Irish music combined with the lush backing and textures of Bryan’s guitars, locked in by the explosive nature of Forrest’s drumming with Pat’s whistles and pipes hauntingly woven throughout. Ken’s rich voice and solid guitar playing complete the sound that is the Ne’er Duwels.

Guest artists on the album include Brett Anderson, leader of the famous all-female rock ‘n’ roll band The Donnas, local recording artist Hale May, Ken’s daughter Angela O’Malley and Scottish actor/singer Kevin McKidd notably of television’s “Grey’s Anatomy” fame.

This is an album where traditional Irish music meets modern world sounds and rhythms. There are several original songs as well as some Celtic gems given a new luster and energy as only the Ne’er Duwels can.

The Ne’er Duwels will be performing to promote the new album throughout Southern California with a national tour to follow later on. For more information, please send an email or join their mailing list below:
