Welcome to our website!
Karen (fiddle) and Patrick (uilleann pipes) play traditional music learned through years of study, absorbing a large and growing repertoire from Chicago’s community of Irish immigrant and Irish American musicians, from old tune collections, and from recordings old and new. They have traveled thousands of miles to learn from masters, and spent countless hours honing and refining their sound, both at home and in the rough-and-tumble Chicago session scene. They play at folk festivals, regional and national trad music events, and St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. They are at work recording a collection of tunes presently.
They have been on radio and television and have had tracks featured on both Irish and regional radio.
