Louise released her first solo album last year on the Cló Iar-Chonnacht label Tuning the Road to widespread critical and popular acclaim. Louise was well-known for her music from previous albums released with her father Mick and sister Michelle as part of The Mulcahy Family, Notes from the Heart and Reelin' in Tradition both released on the Cló Iar-Chonnacht.
What the judges from the LiveIreland Music Awards 2015 had to say:
FEMALE MUSICIAN OF THE YEAR: Louise Mulcahy
Louise is the virtuoso piper and flute player form the iconic Mulcahy family. She grew up Co. Leitrim and in a manner of speaking, she has grown up in front of us all. She and her sister Michelle, along with dad, Mick, have given us two wonderful cd’s as a trio. Sister Michelle gave us an award-winning solo Suaimhneas, which helped redefine modern harp playing. Now comes Louise with Tuning the Road. A complete wonder of an album from a truly brilliant musician. They do not come better than Louise Mulcahy, and that is good enough, indeed.
