Stephen Devaney

Button Accordion

Stephen hails from Connemara, County Galway, Ireland. As a young boy, he would accompany his mother to the local tech school every Friday night for a ceili dance. Inspiration and encouragement to play the box came from his two uncles, Frankie McDonagh and Seanin Phat Mylea McDonagh. Their love for Irish music and enthusiasm to share their knowledge allowed him the opportunity to learn from the best of the best in Connemara and beyond. Stephen moved to Boston in 1989, playing in many local sessions. Celebrated musician and friend, Denis Galvin, served as a further resource for expanding Stephen's playing and repertoire. You can find Stephen playing with Connacht and at various sessions in the Boston area.
