Violin and mandolin.
Marie plays violin and mandolin, and has been exposed to American and European folk music by her very musical family for as long as she can remember. She is currently teaching string lessons in the small towns of South-eastern Minnesota as well as majoring in music education at St. Mary's University in Winona. She is particularly influenced by the fiddling styles of Frankie Gavin and Natalie MacMaster.
Guitar, banjo, and vocals.
Hugh took an early liking to Irish music, and
has been playing it almost as long as he's been playing guitar. Hugh's
energy and unique blues/rock background in rhythm guitar brings a dynamic
energy to the band.
Bodhran and sound reinforcement.
Joe is originally from Northeast Minneapolis, where he
learned traditional Scandinavian music from his father
(who performed on guitar with Ernest
Iverson). Joe's other passion is Irish music, also part
of his heritage. Besides lending
bodhran to the band, Joe is the sound master,
making sure our live performances and recordings are true.
