"I admire the way Niall's deep affinity for bluegrass and American country music blends seamlessly with his Irish sensibilities. It makes him a uniquely appealing artist, and Pinecastle is lucky to have him," said Pete Wernick (Dr. Banjo).
The Niall Toner Band is an acoustic Irish bluegrass band with Celtic influences that have three albums to their credit. The perform at festivals and venues in Ireland, United Kingdom, Europe and the United States. Their diverse repertoire ranges from contemporary up-tempo songs, to inspirational gospel-style numbers, as well as tributes to Bill Monroe like "The Master's Resting Place" and "Bill Monroe's Mandolin."
Niall's most recent U.S. album release was THE SOUNDS OF THE BLACKSTAIRS MOUNTAINS, features his tribute song to the Father of Bluegrass, “William Smith Monroe,” that is still receiving extensive airplay on bluegrass radio.
Niall's composition credits include songs recorded by artists like Bill Wyman (The Rolling Stones), The Nashville Bluegrass Band, Albert Lee, Special Consensus, Keith Sewell, The Swanson Family and more. In 2003, Niall was nominated for a Global Artist Award by the Country Music Association.
