About The Band
It was the summer of 2007. In the middle of The Netherlands. Arnhem to be precise. That’s where our two protagonists met. That fateful meeting turned into a love story across two continents and eventually lead to the formation of The O’Deadlys, considered by many to be Ontario’s top Celtic band.
Led by Ayron Mortley (vocals & guitar) and Lindsey O’Connell (vocals, accordion, harmonica & tin whistles), the band stretches as far as a 6-piece with fiddle, sax & flute, bass, and drums.
In addition to The O’Deadlys, Lindsey, and Ayron are often hired as side musicians to record or perform with other musicians including; Kevin Quain & the Mad Bastards, Wild Strawberries, The Mahones, Ben Sures, Taxi Chain/Urban Highlanders, The Buccaneers, Airs & Graces, and Walter Moffat. They have been lucky enough to share the stage with both Alan Doyle and Sean McCann (of Great Big Sea) and John McDermott.
Notable recent gigs include; the Ireland Fund of Canada’s Luncheon, the St. Patrick’s Parade Society’s Grand Marshal’s Ball, the Canada Games 2022, and Toronto’s Celtic Island Music Festival.
Ayron Mortley – Vocals & Guitar
Fun Fact: Ayron also teaches guitar, bass, mandolin, tenor & 5-string banjo, piano, and drum lessons online. For the few rare nights a week, he’s not on the stage, he can be found on the ice where he’s slightly less professional.
Lindsey O’Connell – Accordion, Harmonica, & Tin Whistles
Fun Fact: Aside from playing music professionally, Lindsey is a real-life Snow White who can make friends with practically any wild animal. WARNING: she should not be disturbed while reading a good book.
