DON PENZIEN has long been a top-flight performer of traditional Irish music. He frequently tours nationally playing concerts and festivals with The Máirtín de Cógáin Project, John Whelan, Jil Chambless, Captain Mackey’s Goatskin & String Band, Legacy, and the newly formed band The Pure Drop (featuring Brian Conway, John Whelan, & Máirtín de Cógáin).
Don’s dexterous work on DADGAD guitar provides solid, driving rhythms to traditional tunes as well as perceptive and sensitive accompaniments to songs and airs. When called upon, he also adds whistle, bodhran and vocals to arrangements.
