“Not ANOTHER educational-family-folk-classical music duo where the performers play oboe, steel-string guitar, Celtic harp, autoharp, ukulele, mandolin, electric bass, bodhran, djembe, banjo, English horn, tin whistle and bagpipes, plus stepdance, dramatize original stories set to music, and do a whole bunch of humourous songs as well as lots of music.”

We invite you to explore, listen and check out our educational and musical merchandise.
