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.
