Their repertoire features Scottish and Irish music, some of which dates back to the late 1700s, as well as current Celtic music and Americana tunes, with a few originals tossed into the mix. Brendan Cochran provides a percussive flair to the songs and bassist Jonathan Satz adds a new dimension to the music. Locals Eames & Pam Petersen will be featured as guest artists. With instrumentation that includes recorders, Irish whistles, guitars, bass, hand drums, percussion, and beautiful harmonies, this group's music can transport its listener to an earlier time, or to a happier place.
