From diverse backgrounds with an eclectic blend of influences, DreamBeam’s Margaret Kennedy/flute and Stephen Housden/guitar take us on an exciting journey in sound with an original repertoire that includes Celtic influenced melodies, acoustic funk, Latin rhythms and so much more.
The collaboration began a few years ago when Stephen and Margaret met at a music session in a West Cork pub. Realising they had a great musical chemistry they decided to work on some original tunes to record.
Since then DreamBeam has developed a unique style and are currently in the studio recording their debut CD. Their first single Blue Space Calling will be released in September.
Margaret regularly plays with Stephen’s band, Kings Of Kudos. She is featured on two tracks on their EP, Third Mode From The Sun, due to launch at The Clonakilty International Guitar Festival 2019.
Margaret has been featured on various CDs by local and international artists, including Richard Gilewitz (USA) and AJC-Continuum (Australia).
Stephen Housden toured the world for many years as a member of Little River Band. He has also has played alongside many music greats including; Dr. John, Warren Zevon, John Entwistle (The Who), Glen Frey (Eagles), Albert Lee and Paddy Keenan (Bothy Band).
Stephen moved from Australia to West Cork 20 years ago.
