vocalist; his skilled bodhrán adds punch to the dance tunes.
Matt Lewis’ guitar drives the faster tunes and evokes the lyrical
beauty to the ballads that Matt and Robert sing.
Larry Mallette is the featured flute and whistle player/composer.
Diehl Moran’s inventive fiddle and banjo add grace and punch to
the music. Kendall Rogers is a highly sought traditional
