INCHIQUIN entwickelte sich aus der lebendigen Volksmusik-Tradition des County Clare an der Westküste Irlands, aus der auch der Dudelsackspieler Willie Clancy und die Russel-Family kommen. Vor dem Hintergrund dieser Tradition, in der Noel Hill, einer der besten Concertina-Spieler und "All Ireland Champion" 1970 bis 77 und der Fiddler Tony Linnane stehen, versucht Inchiquin die Einflüsse der anderen Teile Irlands in ihre Musik aufzunehmen.

Inchiquin Tony und Noel waren Gründer der Gruppe Harp, einer Kombination aus Clare- und Galway-Musikern, die sich im Sommer 1976 auflöste. Barry Moore, als drittes Mitglied von Inchiquin, trägt durch sein melodiöses Gitarrenspiel wesentlich zum Sound der Gruppe bei. Der Bruder des bekannten irischen Sängers Christy Moore war bereits zu einer Solo-Tournee in der BRD und zählt neben Mick Hanly und Andy Irvine zu den interessantesten Vokalisten des gegenwärtigen irischen Folk-Revivals.

'Raining Concertinas' by Geoff Wallis
2005 Return to Camden Town Festival Magazine

Noel Hill ~ On his return to Clare he determined to become a full-time musician. Indeed Noel was Irelandís first ever professional concertina player and there have been few others since. He hitched up with Tony Linnane, banjo-player Kieran Hanrahan and guitarist Tony Callanan to form the group Inchiquin. The band recorded one album and toured Germany before Hanrahan and Callanan left to form Stocktonís Wing and became part of one of Irelandís best-known bands in the process.

Hill and Linnane continued playing together with Barry Moore (Christyís younger brother, a.k.a. Luka Bloom) on guitar, though Barry had left by the time the pair released their self-titled album for Tara in 1979, an album which still sounds as fresh as the day it was recorded and one which includes some frankly flabbergasting fiddle and concertina duets - and there arenít many of those around. They are also featured on Christy Mooreís The Iron Behind the Velvet and Planxtyís The Woman I Loved So Well...
