Deirdre Millane has been immersed in Irish Traditional music from a young age. Deirdre started her musical journey, like most others, on the tin-whistle in her local Comhaltas branch and within a couple of years she decided that her musical endeavours were best suited to the piano. Deirdre sought to further enrich her musicality by studying classical piano and the theory of music. Although she much preferred the lively nature of traditional music, this foundation greatly enhanced her understanding of musical elements such as structure, harmony, melody and rhythm. Deirdre continued her studies at The Irish World Academy where she completed a BA in Irish Music and Dance. During her time in UL, Deirdre further honed her skills in playing and composing and also gained the opportunity to learn from many great pianists she looked up to over the years such as Míchéal Ó Súilleabháin, Liam Bradley, Francis Ward, Caoimhin Vallely and Ryan Molloy.
She is currently teaching in Scoil Eoin, Balloonagh in Tralee and is delighted to fulfil her life-long ambition of releasing a solo piano album.
She is currently a resident musician with the show ‘Turas’ in Siamsa Tíre, The National Folk Theatre of Ireland.
