3,312 musicians and counting...

HELP WANTED. If you know musicians not on this list, or have additional info on any of the names listed, please click here to let us know!

This is our most ambitious project yet, a "complete" listing of the musicians and the band(s) for which they played! Due to time and space restrictions, we can only list bands and musicians who played across Ireland (not local groups, we hope you understand).

We know that many of the musicians listed on these pages have sadly passed away, but unfortunately we have no way of knowing who has left us without your help. We continue to update the list on a daily basis.

If you know of any members of any bands, let us know and we'll add them to this directory. This list was culled from news articles and a variety of other sources. If you spot a mistake, click here to let us know .
