What to Expect
Soaring vocals, energetic music, and a mix of traditional jigs and reels, classic celtic music and some contemporary songs in the celtic genre, this is our claim to fame. We feature 4 vocalist who have an ability to blend vocally like teams that have been together for years.
Our music runs the gambit from sublime to frenetic, from ethereal to energetic. We feature three woman with extreme musical talents. Alli Johnson is our lead singer who's voice is memorizing. Jaycie Skidmore is our flute and whistle player who was classically trained with a degree from Baylor in performance flute. She also sings soprano and has been compared to Allison Krause. Kimia Penton is our violinist, also classically trained. Kimia hails from London, England.
The rest of our band is Dave Ervin, vocals and guitars, Joel Black, upright and acoustic fretless bass, and Martin McCall, all things percussive.
