Noel Minogue

Button Accordion, Vocals

Noel comes from Borrisokane in the County Tipperary, a rural area in which traditional music is very much looked after. In his large family, everyone plays an instrument and Noel, already began as a child to learn the Button accordion, also lovingly named “the box”. During innumerable sessions, he studied the polkas, jigs and reels of his native home.

At the age of fourteen he was nominated ‘Tipperary junior champion” in the music competitions through out Ireland. He lived a long time in Dublin and played in the band ‘Beal Bocht”. He later spent a long time in London and Paris and when he came to Berlin he had already a good reputation as a highly talented box player. Here he met Aaron and Bernd, who already performed successfully together and sought a new melody instrumental player. As a trio, they named themselves Midnight Court. Noel devoted himself completely to the music and became a professional musician. He plays many variations enhanced with a certain swing, in the well known B/ C tuning. In the band, he is the rather quiet part that provides furor through his masterly prestidigitation on his instrument. Atmosphere comes if he can be drawn to sing a song in his unique manner. Noel is with Midnight Court a musician that brings the traditional note into the total game.
