We are an Irish music duo featuring authentic music, songs and stories from Ireland, Scotland, and other Celtic lands both real and imagined. Our rousing and musical performances get crowds singing, clapping and stomping their feet, and we sing familiar pub tunes as well as contemporary Irish and Scottish songs. We tell a story and a joke or two as well, to share with others the Irish experience.
If you love fantasy realms, look to us to bring the right musical tone for themed events featuring elves, hobbits, dwarves and other folk!

What to Expect
When hiring Road to Inis Mòr, you will notice that we are flexible in our desire to make your event shine the way you want. Dean and Kristen are the core members, however if you want a bigger group, we are happy to accommodate. Our goal is to give you the best performance we can give in the genre requested, whether it be as an Irish band, nautical singing group, or even a band right out of The Prancing Pony in Bag End!
If you wish for us to dress to the theme, that is of course an option. Just let us know what you want!
We also have our own sound equipment for a separate rental fee, if requested.
Dean and Kristen have been performing their entire lives, whether it be on stage, in the streets of the renaissance faire, or at public and private events all over the San Francisco Bay Area. Dean has been playing drums since he was 10, and when he picked up the Irish bodhran one day years ago, it was like they were best friends from the start. Kristen has been surrounded by music with her family, and singing and dancing all her life. Her mother played the guitar, and she found that the ukulele was perfect for her. They are both seasoned professionals in the entertainment industry, and feel that entertaining others is what they love to do the most.
