Dylan Foley is, as Brian Conway said, one the finest Irish fiddlers of his generation. A 4 time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion, he has delighted audiences from Lincoln Center to the Austin Celtic Festival, and from the mayor’s Gracie Mansion in NYC to Irish Television channels RTE and TG4. In 2013, Foley traveled with Mick Moloney to Vietnam as part of Irish Aid, bringing Irish music and culture to those who were affected by the horrors of the Vietnam War. Dylan is busy as a teacher and performer at the major Irish music schools and festivals on both sides of the Atlantic, including the John Dwyer Festival in Waterford, Padraig O’Keefe Festival in Kerry, and the Atlanta Irish Festival. His band, The Yanks, has been called” the next Irish American dream team”. Dylan is committed to passing on the tradition, as it was graciously passed to him, by the incomparable Rose Flanagan and others. You can hear his passion for the music is in his lively and fluid playing.
… one of the finest fiddlers in America and certainly the most genial among them…his feel and tone breathtaking… He pulls brilliant music from the fiddle… Daniel Neely/The Irish Echo
Eamon O‘Leary – guitar, bouzouki, vocals
While growing up in Dublin, Eamon O’Leary developed an interest in Irish music through his friendship with Emer, Breda and John Mayock, a noted family of Irish traditional musicians from Co. Mayo. His first instrument was the guitar, which he started playing while in his teens. When he moved to New York City in 1991, he met guitarist John Doyle, fiddle player Patrick Ourceau and other New York based musicians, and has since become a fixture in the city’s thriving Irish music scene. He is one half of the duo The Murphy Beds alongside guitarist and singer Jefferson Hamer, and is well known for his duo and band work with Nuala Kennedy. Eamon is a superb accompanist as well as singer-songwriter and respected interpreter of Irish traditional song.
