About Luke

Hailing from the Renvyle Peninsula in North West Connemara, Luke grew up surrounded by music. Watching his grandfather, Paddy Gannon, playing the Accordion at a cousin’s wedding when he was just 8 years old inspired the start of his own journey with Irish Traditional music just 3 years later.

Luke started playing professionally at the age of 13 along with other young local musicians. He has won county and provincial titles at the Fleadh Cheoil and has competed in numerous All-Ireland competitions. He has since composed over 60 original tunes.

It's a pleasure to listen to the music of Luke Gannon, a musician mature beyond his years. He has his own distinct style of accordion playing, with a hint here and there of the master accordionists that influenced him over the years.

I asked Peter Horan one time what would his advice be for a young musician. He said “Listen to them all and do your own thing”. Obviously Luke has done this very well. He plays with heart and soul. He’s an inventive player of Reels, Jigs, Hornpipes, Barndances and Waltzes. He’s also a fine composer. He’s a great player.
