Ciarán is a bodhrán master & singer in Irish tradition.

Ciarán was brought up in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, his father emigrating from Co. Kilkenny along with his brother and sister in the fifties. He brought with him a knowledge and passion for music and song which he passed on to all five of his children. He learned a great deal from his Dad, the late Tommy Boyle who was well known in South Yorkshire where he was often to be heard in sessions. His mum was a traditional singer too, and Ciarán counts himself lucky to be brought up in a house full of music and travelling musicians.

He went on to win All Britan and All Ireland bodhrán titles by the time he was thirteen years old. He then formed with Eoin Tether and Patrick Walker, the much acclaimed Mulljumpers.

He later joined forces with Tom Napper, and Gina Le Faux to become one third of Napper Le Faux and Boyle. Ciarán later became a member of Last Night's Fun, touring at home and abroad until December 2008. He has also performed with Kevin Burke, Tommy Peoples and Mike McGoldrick.

He released his first solo album in 2006 entitled 'The Sunday Walks'.

He is also in demand for recording and session work, some of his past session work includes:-

Tom Napper, Tom Bliss, ‘The Kelping’, slip 008, 2005
