Aidan Brennan

Dublin native Aidan Brennan has fast become one of the most sought-after Irish guitarist in the United States. On arriving in the United States, he soon found the opportunity to perform with players of the caliber of Paddy O'Brien, Brian Dunning, Randall Bays, and Martin Hayes. Now living in Portland, Oregon, where he is a fixture on the Irish music scene, he regularly tours with Kevin Burke, Susan McKeown, Breda Smyth, and Lawrence Nugent among others.

Aidan has also recorded and toured internationally with Loreena McKennitt, on whose most recent platinum release "The Book of Secrets" he appears. He is also featured on her previous 1996 release "Song for a Winter Garden". Other recording credits include Alasdair Frasier's "Dawn Dance".

Aidan has been invited to participate in the US tour with "Lord of the Dance" composer Ronan Hardiman to promote his newest album "Solas". In July 1998 Aidan was performing in the world renowned hit show "Riverdance" in Toronto.
