Damien O’Kane & Ron Block
Tradfest 2020

Irish musician Damien O’Kane was born in Coleraine. He lives in Yorkshire with his wife, musician Kate Rusby, and their two daughters.

Damien O’Kane is a musician of many talents. He’s a singer. A very good one, too, with a relaxed, assured vocal style that exudes a natural warmth and empathy with the colourful characters who occupy his songs.

Damien O’Kane is also a brilliant banjo player. And a fine guitarist. And an ingenious arranger. Not to mention an accomplished tunemaker, researcher, bandleader and accompanist of rich imagination and fearless vision.

Throughout Ron Block's  life - and certainly throughout his extraordinary career – multi-instrumentalist Ron Block has been something of a musical Huck Finn, a tireless adventurer exploring various styles yet rooted firmly in the bluegrass-country tradition.

Ron Block is a longtime member of the Grammy-winning band Alison Krauss and Union Station.
