About Sweet Colleens:
The Sweet Colleens are Jeremy Greenhouse, Pete Sandvik, Dave Bade, Rich Larson, and Wolf Loescher, accomplished multi-instrumentalists who together fuse their diverse musical backgrounds into a high-energy, infectious, and crowd-pleasing mix of fiddle-infused, accordion-fueled, celti-cajun folk pop.
About the HiBs:
The HiBs are Kate & Jode Dowling and Patsy O'Brien. Kate plays flute and tin whistle, Jode fiddles and Patsy sings, plays guitar, composes, writes songs, and bicycles in his spare time. The HiBs play and teach true, straightforward traditional Irish music at festivals, pubs, weddings, private and corporate events, schools, formal concerts, dances and sessions. They are sought after for their traditional céilí and set dance music and enjoy including traditional dance & dance instruction in their performances.
About The Eddies:
The Eddies are Tom Welna (vocals), Mark Richardson (vocals), Phil Platt (vocals and mandola), Paul Martin (vocals and guitar) and Chuck Lentz (vocals and accordion). The one-of-a-kind great singers of shanties and other upscale songs of life, The Eddies, engage audiences with a compelling mix of traditional, roots, and contemporary songs with multi-party harmonies. Their "Songs of Work, Love, and Death" are often acapella, but also accompanied by guitar, mandola, and accordion.
