Leo hails from Scariff, a town on the shores of Lough Derg in the eastern part of County Clare. It's steeped in Irish traditional music and is considered by many as the heart and home of the music. His style is rooted in East Clare but incorporates elements of the flute styles of Roscommon and Sligo, with a strong focus on the rhythm of the music. He started playing tin whistle when he was six years old, listened to the Bothy Band when he was eight, and moved on to the flute at age ten. He grew up knowing and playing with such great musicians as P.J. Hayes, Paddy Canny, Martin Woods, Martin Rochford, Peadar O'Loughlin, Christy Barry, and Martin Hayes. He is the flute player with the All-Star Clare Ceili Band and teaches flute & whistle.
Aurora discovered her love of traditional Irish music upon moving to Seattle. She enjoys listening to (and playing along with) recordings of Clare-based fiddlers such as Paddy Canny, P.J. Hayes, James Kelly, and Martin Hayes. Several years ago she was drawn to the slow airs, since these beautiful melodies are older than most reels and jigs. From 2008 - 2010 she competed at the All-Ireland Fleadh (the Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann) in Tullamore, Ireland, where in 2009 she placed second in the Fiddle Slow Air competition.
