You don’t just get to play with the artists Jacob has played with unless you are on the B of the Buille at all times. Jacob’s tight, tactful tipping and tuneful left hand make him stand out from the ever growing bodhrán crowd” ” - Host of RTE Radio Ireland's Cóisir Cheoil (

A master of the bodhrán, Jacob McCauley's playing shows depth and dexterity on both classic and contemporary Celtic music. His super-skilful technique adapts to drive energetic reels, or to provide lovely delicate tipping on slower numbers. Jacob has that rare ability to step up at the right moments, but fade into the background as required. His performance always enhances the music.” - Well-known Traditional music reviewer from Irish Music Magazine, The Living Tradition Magazine and Folk World
