Dylan Foley is “… one of the finest fiddlers in America and certainly the most genial among them…his feel and tone is breathtaking…He pulls brilliant music from the fiddle…” Daniel Neely/The Irish Echo
Well respected and received wherever he goes, Dylan is a 4-time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion, who performs, teaches, and adjudicates at festivals and fleadhs on both sides of the Atlantic. He has delighted audiences from Lincoln Center to Alaska, to Vietnam with Mick Moloney, and Irish Television channels RTE and TG4. A superb performer, he is also committed to passing on the tradition, as it was graciously passed to him, by Rose Flanagan and others. Dylan brings great depth and joy to his solo performances, with his multi-instrumental talents, an occasional song, and sheer good humor. You will hear his passion for the music is in his lively and fluid playing.
Matt Stapleton, a predominantly self-taught guitarist from upstate New York, is a sought after accompanist for the Irish traditional music session scene in New York City. He has backed up some of the great traditional musicians from the U.S. and Ireland, and has been an artist-in-residence at a number of venues around the country, from Washington DC to Las Vegas to St. Louis, to name a few.

Yvonne is one of Co. Clare’s distinctive fiddle players. She grew up surrounded by the richness of Clare music and plays in a unique soulful style. Sitting in sessions from a very young age she discovered the joys of Doolin as a teen, where she met and played with legendary musicians such as Kevin Griffin and Eoin O’ Neill.
In the 1990’s the band The Ceili Bandits was formed, Yvonne recorded two CDs with them and toured Europe and the U.S.A. She also recorded her first solo CD in 2004. For many years Yvonne also played with trad-rock band Bushplant and singer-songwriter Luka Bloom.
Since then Yvonne has created her own music school in Ennistymon, Co. Clare, and performs and teaches at various festivals at home and abroad. Her recent collaboration with Donegal accordion player Dermot Byrne is charming audiences with their fresh new sound. Yvonne recently released her second CD entitled “Croí’ which includes many of her own new compositions. A special treat for all music lovers!
