folk music on fiddle, hardanger fiddle and '5+5' fiddle.

In addition to being an established solo artist, he
performs duos with dynamic Kerry accordion player Brendan
Begley and Dublin uilleann piper Mick O'Brien, plays in a trio
with Martin Hayes and Peadar Ó Riada, and is a member
of two groups: The Gloaming and This Is How We Fly.

He has released eight CDs to date: Kitty Lie Over and Deadly Buzz
with Mick O'Brien; A Moment of Madness with Brendan Begley;
Triúr Arís and Triúr sa Draighean with Martin Hayes
and Peadar Ó Riada; Comb Your Hair and Curl It with
Mícheál Ó Raghallaigh and Catherine McEvoy; the
eponymous debut from the band This is How We Fly;
and his solo Where the One-Eyed Man is King.

As well his work in traditional Irish music, Caoimhín writes
new contemporary material that explores the region where
traditional music begins to disintegrate.
