Formed in 1991, the Wichita, Kansas-based Claddagh Ring has been described as a truly unique band. Reviews have said: "The seemingly limitless combinations of voice, instrumentation and musical selection is a delight to the spirit. The interchangeability of instruments, including the traditional penny whistles, bodhran, accordion and cello, give the group the benefit of exploring all the various musical backgrounds that each member brings to the group for unique arrangements and sound quality."
