Deanta (pronounced: Jaunt-a) was formed in the early 1990’s in County Antriam, Northern Ireland. The original line-up featured Katie O’Brien, who played fiddle and viola, and her brother, Eoghan, who played guitar and harp. Paul Mullan (flute, whistles), Clodagh Warnock (bouzouki, fiddle, bodhran, percussion) and Mary Dillon (vocals, synthesizer, guitar, harp) rounded out the group although Deidre Havlin later replaced Mullan, and Rosie Mulholland (keyboards, fiddle) was added.
