Well-regarded in music circles for their inventive interpretation of traditional Irish dance music, the duo have forged one of the most remarkable partnerships in acoustic music today. Their performances distill the essence of Irish music while exploring and expanding the tradition in both intimate and electrifying ways.
They have collaborated with filmmakers, modern dance choreographers, theatre directors, and classical and jazz musicians, yet their identity remains uniquely their own, rooted solidly in the tradition of East County Clare where Martin was raised.
The Boston Irish Tourism Association is giving away a pair of tickets to the second show. To enter the contest click here.
