The Grady Girls
Toe tapping, heart lifting, subtle and smiling, The Grady Girls breathe new life into timeless Irish dance tunes. Family ties are important to these women who have traveled far and wide (Cork, Limerick, Spain and beyond) to study and perform the traditional music of Ireland, music that has been an integral part of their lives since day one.
Nora (fiddle), Marie (flute), Leah (bodhrán), and Saoirse (fiddle) are based in Ithaca, NY, their hometown, and currently draw musical inspiration from the continuous stream of Irish musicians passing through town, and their old time neighbors, exploring the links between different genres of traditional music.
Oona (fiddle) and newest band member James (guitar), both reside in Saratoga Springs, where they perform as the duo Drank The Gold. They can't help but make frequent trips back to Ithaca, though, to join the rest of the Grady Girls and their irresistible, powerful sound.
The Grady Girls perform with exuberance and style.
Mise Eire Irish Dancers of Saratoga is a traditional Irish dance school in the heart of Saratoga Springs, NY. At Mise Eire, we believe in a healthy, fun approach to Irish dance where each dancer - beginner or advanced, young or old - embodies the rich culture of Ireland in very step he or she takes on the dance floor.
