About Trad Pack

Trad Pack is a pack of musicians who dedicated to Irish music. Those four present a thrilling mixture of traditional and modern tunes and songs.

Kevin Sheahan (vocals, bouzouki, guitar), Susanne Kamp (flute, box, whistles), Michael Kamp (bodhrán, banjo, mandolin) and Veronika von Rüden (fiddle) have been active members of the Irish music scene in Germany for many years. They have been known for bands like The Stokes, Craig Herbertson Band or airím, as well as being very welcome guests to several Irish music sessions all over Germany and Ireland.

Kevin Sheahan - vocals, guitar, bouzouki

Kevin has been renowned as the singer with the distinctive voice with The Stokes.
At Trad Pack he's about to show that he is very capable of playing Irish tunes on guitar and Irish bouzouki, too.

Susanne Kamp - flute, box, whistle

Susanne started her musical career with the well known duo airím in 1998. She was a member of multiple bands since, like the Craig Herbertson Band, Maik Goth Band or Spideog. The Irish flute and the box are Susanne's main instruments, which are complemented by tin and low whistles once in a while.

Veronika von Rüden - fiddle

Veronika has been enjoying playing traditional Irish music at sessions and in changing bands since she heard that music in Doolin, at Ireland's western shore, for the very first time. She made Ireland's County Clare her second home, where she has been getting inspired by the vibrant local music scene and where she has been meeting musicians from Ireland and all around the world. Veronika's specialties have been the full sound of her fiddle and her musical intuition.

Michael Kamp - bodhrán, banjo, mandolin

Michael is considered to be one of Germany's best and most dedicated bodhrán players. But he's not that bad a banjo and mandolin player, too. Michael has been a member of different bands during the last years, like Spideog, Maik Goth Band or the Craig Herbertson Band. He's a welcome guest musician and can be seen with several bands on stage or at the studio.
