Jarlath Henderson is a singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer from Armagh, who was the BBC Young Folk Award recipient in 2003. Renowned primarily for his extraordinary prowess on uilleann pipes and whistles, he is fast emerging as an equally gifted vocalist. Having established an international profile for his firebrand partnership with Scottish piper and whistle player Ross Ainslie, and after rapturous album reviews, Jarlath released his own debut solo album, ‘Hearts Broken, Heads Turned’ in 2016; an assemblage of traditional folk songs from across the UK and Ireland.
