Damien O’Kane And Ron Block

When you look at their backgrounds, Damien O’Kane and Ron Block have followed similar trajectories. Both began playing at a young age, immersed in their local scenes: Ron in Southern California and Damien in Coleraine, Northern Ireland. They’ve both played fundamental roles in bands. Ron’s big gig came in 1991, when he joined the mighty force of Alison Krauss’ band, for whom Grammy and Bluegrass Awards have rained down plentifully over the years. Damien played with Irish/Anglo supergroup Flook among others, before joining Kate Rusby’s band in 2008 (before exchanging wedding bands in 2010). He’s also been nominated twice at BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and hailed by none other than Jo Whiley as a ‘sonic architect.’

Damien and Ron started working on a new record in April 2019. They recorded a bunch of tracks and met up again at Pure Studios to record more in November 2019 after a tour in the UK. They will release their new record in June 2022.

“Ron and Damien are flying the flag for making the banjo even sexier.” Louder Than War
“I challenge banjo non-believers not to be moved by this transatlantic banjo union.” Lynette Fay, BBC Radio Ulster
