Eileen Gannon has been lighting up the St. Louis music scene for many years. Eileen, a St. Louis native, is one of the top Irish harp players in the world. She has won numerous accolades including the highly coveted Senior Harp title at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann (World Irish Music Championships). She has a bachelor’s degree in Music Performance from St. Louis University and a master’s degree in Ethnomusicology from University of Limerick. Eileen has toured and performed all over the world and is a regular tutor at international festivals like the Catskills Irish Arts Week, and Scoil Eigse. Eileen also represented Ireland at World Expos in 2010 in Shanghai, China and in 2015, in Milan, Italy.

Hi there, I'm Bernadette Nic Gabhann. I come from a musical family in County Meath, in the east of Ireland. I learned to play at home from my Dad, Antóin Mac Gabhann. I now live in Dublin, where I perform & teach at various music events throughout Ireland, and anywhere aeroplanes are going. I grew up with a great bunch of musicians in Co. Meath. We played mostly Reels & Jigs, with a few Hornpipes, Barndances & O'Carolan Marches. I participated in many Fleadhanna Cheoil in my youth ; solo, duet, Grupaí Cheoil & Céilí Band.

I then started travelling the world playing fiddle & promoting Irish Arts. There were small trips during college, and then some full time music after. I toured as Fiddle player with Troupe 2 of ‘Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance’. We toured through many US towns, and also to Alaska & South Korea. I also performed with Gaelforce Dance, which toured Eastern Europe and Taiwan, and I spent a summer in Busch Gardens, Virginia with Irish Thunder. I lived in Nashville for a little while then , before moving back to Ireland.

HOUSE CONCERT and Potluck Dinner.

David Power is one of Ireland’s foremost musicians on the uilleann pipes. Fiddler, Willie Kelly was born in the Bronx to a musical family from Ireland and is an extremely well-respected player and teacher. Together, they are embarking on a selective tour beginning in New York and on through the mid-western United States with their album Apples in Winter. The tour promises performances of pure quality; moving and deeply felt Irish traditional music at its best.

David Power, from Co. Waterford, Ireland, toured American performing arts centers with the Masters of Tradition for three consecutive years, appeared on Broadway in the Eugene O’Neill play A Touch of the Poet, starring Gabriel Byrne, and has performed with poets Dermot Bolger, Seamus Heaney, Kerry Hardie and others. He has three solo piping recordings: My Love is in America, Cuaichín Ghleann Neifín and The eighteen Moloney. He plays with Ciarán Somers in the group Pipers Union and in duet shows with Willie Kelly and with Martin Hayes.

Willie Kelly, based in New Jersey, has performed extensively with renowned Galway flute players, Mike Rafferty and Jack Coen, both National Heritage Fellowship award winners. He accompanied both Mike and Jack at their respective induction concerts and has played at the Smithsonian Festival of Folklife in D.C.  In 2009, Willie released a highly acclaimed duet CD with Mike Rafferty called The New Broom. More recently he recorded with concertina player Dymphna O’Sullivan as a guest on the recordings Bean Cairdin and Enriched.
