Band members:

  • katarzyna szyszkowska

    Katarzyna Szyszkowska

    fiddle, vocal


    Graduated from the musicology department at the University of Warsaw. She's interested in the styles of traditional and contemporary violinists from all around the world. She was taught the art of traditional Irish music playing by such masters as Oisin McDiarmada (Sligo), James Kelly, Tommy Peoples, Paul O'Shoughnessy (Donegal) and Martin Hayes (Clare). Kasia's ease of style makes it possible to hear in her music, apart from traditional Irish forms, elements from traditional Iranian, Indian and Balkan music, but also modern influences: jazz harmonies, blues improvisations and rock riffs. Kasia co-created "Manikut" band and currently plays first violin in "4 non Brets" - a Breton music group.

  • tomasz urbański

    Tomasz Urbański

    accordion, keyboards


    He's a part of Duan from the very beginning of its creation. Before that, he used to play in "The Celtic Folk", and recently has had the pleasure of playing and recording with "De Press". His phone is permanently attached to his ear, since he's the official managerial voice of Duan. When it comes to music, Irish traditional music is the one dear to his heart, but he also enjoys listening to acoustic and jazz melodies.

  • lukasz potoczny

    Łukasz Potoczny

    acoustic guitar, banjo, vocal


    Banjo player, guitarist and a singer performing for many years on stages and in pubs all over Poland and worldwide. Joined Duan in 2016 as a banjo player and main singer. Always exuberant on stage he banters the audience with song introductions and stories. He is very fond of the musical traditions of Clare and Sligo counties, as well as of Scotland. Apart from Celtic music Łukasz is interested in Gypsy jazz and bal folk. Also an avid repairer of banjos and diatonic accordions, he dreams of becoming a proper luthier some day. As a populariser of Celtic music and culture he started the Celtycki Wrocław movement.

    Adam "Rorian" Kryński

    bodhrán, mandolin


    Addicted to music multi-instrumentalist; used to play with "The Celtic Folk" and actively promoted Irish culture in Poland (TPI, "Website for Irish 'Fanatics'"). Although his body resides in Poland, his soul is enjoying the hospitality of XIXth century Ireland. He adores the world as presented in the Robin of Sherwood series and/or post-nuclear wastelands (in no particular order ;-). Graphic designer or developer by profession, non-practicing neo-pagan without driver's licence, he's strongly attached to his portable music player; because if not folk music and not Clannad..., then it's dark wave and ambient.
