WATCH: Offaly man's loop pedal banjo playing is incredible


Offaly musician Arthur Stones has caused a stir on social media with a clip of him testing out his new loop pedal on his banjo. 

The Edenderry man is an accomplished traditional music player and along with his brothers, has a multitude of All-Ireland medals. 

He is also a member of the hugely successful trad band, Ruaile Buaile who have toured the world in recent years. They went viral last year with their trad cover of Irish dance anthem, Maniac 2000. 

This clip also fuses the charm of Irish traditional music and the technology utilised by the likes of Ed Sheeran and electronic bands sweeping the charts.

The result, as you will hear in the video above, is phenomenal.
