Eamonn Murray & Ed Deane
Way back in the 60's a fantastic young band hit the scene with a bang, they we're called Blues House and two of its members were then school friends Ed Deane and Eamon Murray. Now all these years later these two talented musicians are playing together again as a very exciting duo.
Ed Deane one of Irelands leading guitarist who is a renowned blues musician, specializing in Slide and the Lap steel guitar and a fine singer.
The list of who he played with in London is endless; Granny’s Intentions and then with the Woods Band, Bees Make Honey who cut an album produced by Nick Lowe. The very popular Juice on the Loose with Ron Kavana and Geraint Watkins. He recorded and toured with Frankie Miller.
For much of the 90's Ed worked with the blues diva Dana Gillespie, then with Chris Jagger, Paul Jones, Shane McGowan and later with Bap Kennedy and Nick Lowe. Ed has also played on the soundtracks of the films ‘Leaving Las Vegas’ and ‘Serendipity’. Ed returned to Ireland 10 years ago and has recored his first solo, instrumental CD 'Slideshow' to critical acclaim on the Blue Navigator label in 2006., with his band 'The Ed Deane Band'.

He has worked with too many line ups to mention including Emotional Fish, Luka Bloom, Rocky de Valera and The Rhythm Kings, The Cajun Kings, Chris Meehan and his Redneck Friends, and his own band Fattenin' Frogs for Snakes.
