Join us for a special rare appearance of The McKrells' blend of Celtic, American folk, and bluegrass -- a truly unique musical experience. Their tours, radio airplay, television appearances and record sales earned them rave reviews & standing ovations throughout the United States.

Kevin McKrell has been a founding member of some very popular bands -- first and foremost Celtic group Donnybrook Fair and, of course, The McKrells! This singer-songerwriter has appeared on the stage of Carnegie Hall to standing ovations, and has shared other stages with the Furey Brothers, The Battlefield Band, Altan, Mary Black, Solas, Travis Tritt, Lonestar, Allison Krause and Sam Bush, to name a few; and his songs have been recorded & performed by many groups, including folk giants, The Kingston Trio.

Pawling's own Chris Leske (banjo, mandolin, vocals) won first place honors in New York and New England banjo competitions as a young teen in the early '70s. In 1984, Chris won First Place in the National Banjo Championship at the famous Walnut Valley Competition in Winfield, Kansas. Chris's abilities on lead guitar were featured on two European tours with world-renowned banjoist Bill Keith and Nashville producer Jim Rooney. He was accepted for a banjo seat at Opryland USA the same year, but declined - favoring a special opportunity to tour Europe. Chris also appeared at Carnegie Hall and toured Ireland frequently with The McKrells.

Since he was six, Doug Moody has delighted audiences, playing everything from classical to traditional fiddle to western swing and rock music in his teens, bebop jazz in college; and in 1991 he joined the original Buffalo-based band, The Steam Donkeys -- a roots rockin country band with a psychedelic twist. Onstage, Doug Moody always gives his audience a memorable, genre-bending performance, replete with boundless passion, unmatched versatility and rarely seen musical diversity.

Rick Bedrosian's association with Kevin McKrell goes back to The Fabulous Newports, a doo-wop band that featured Kevin McKrell. Bedrosian also played with The McKrells when they appeared at Carnegie Hall and at Winterhawk, but he is now probably better known for his work with Hair Of The Dog.
