Troy Donockley has built up a formidable reputation as both a Composer, Arranger and Musician/Performer. He is also a leading virtuoso of the uilleann pipes. He has performed and is known all over the place - Europe, Middle/Far East, Australia, Japan, USA and has worked and recorded with various other artists such as Iona, Maddy Prior, Maire Brennan (Clannad), Nightwish, Midge Ure, Barbara Dickson, Roy Harper, Alan Stivell, Lesley Garrett, Status Quo, Del Amitri, Mostly Autumn, Mandalaband and many more.


His first album "The Unseen Stream" released in 1998, was critically acclaimed globally for its unique fusion of Traditional/Classical forms. His second album "The Pursuit If Illusion" (2003) continued to push the boundaries with a highly individual blend of the English Classical and Irish Fold traditions.


And now, onto the album "The Madness Of Crowds", featuring large cast of brilliant musicians it goes even further than before in the quest to make the most emotional and uncommercial music possible. If Any modern music can shake off the ravages of fashion and hard back to a time when music was created and listened to as Art rather than as commodity and accesory, then by definition this does precisely that, the essence of that "lost world".


Troy has participated in the recording of some big film soundtracks like "Ironclad" too.
