Eamon Durkan: Music & Ecology
Since the age of seven, Eamon Durkan has been no stranger to music — especially close to his heart is the unique role music has in creating community. Well-steeped in Traditional Irish & Bluegrass music, Eamon has also built up a diverse repertoire, ranging from early Jazz & Acoustic Blues to Kirtan and free-form Improvisation.
With his mandolin in hand, he has made close friendships with such musicians as David Bromberg, Durga Das (David Newman) and Nancy Josephson. Bringing presence, humor and openness to his music, Eamon’s unique instrumental and vocal stylings are an ever-changing delight.
Eamon's deep-held feeling is that the world is in great need of good-hearted people who want their hands in the soil. And this is exactly what he has been been doing for the past eight years.
This brimming passion has taken him all around the world, from New York to California, Ireland to France and most recently the Hawaiian archipelago, where he worked as gardener at several sustainable-living communities. Eamon serves as Ecology Manager for Gone West Global ltd, a sustainable tree-planting organization and is a student of Ecology at Aberystwyth University in Wales.
Eamon is also the founder of an ecology podcast, "From Oil to Soil: the shift, a podcast that plants trees!" Please click here for more info!
Over the course of his travels in the U.S., the Caribbean and Europe, Eamon Durkan (RYT200) has become acquainted with a beautiful variety of meditative traditions and techniques.
Currently Eamon is living in Wales, UK, where he is able to combine his love of the Dharma with his service in the world.
