JOHN BLAKE Multi-instrumentalist John launches his debut solo flute album. An ex member of traditional group Téada, John has performed and recorded with many of the great Irish musicians. Brought up in London, John learned his craft from famed teacher of traditional music, Brendan Mulkere. He moved to Ireland in 1998 and developed a reputation as an accompanist of note, racking up several album credits. He joined Téada in 2001 and toured with them for 3 years, before taking a job in Na Píobairí Uilleann (The Pipers Club) in Dublin. These days, John is much in demand for recording projects and is to be found in his studio, The Lions Den, in Raheny, Dublin.
