Kent Daniel and Bill Wiseman are local favourites and although each have been pursuing their own career paths, in very recent years the two have joined together to form a dynamic duo! With Kent's delectable guitar playing and melting vocals blending with Bill's superb whistle playing, it's no wonder that audiences hanker for more. Their set/s combine traditional Irish tunes, contemporary and original songs in an extensive repertoire.
Christopher Cady is a master of the Piedmont finger-style Ragtime Blues. He has a rich, mellow bass voice which lends itself beautifully to the songs he selects, drawing from a well of old blues masters. Artists such as Missisipi John Hurt, Blind Blake, The Reverend Gary Davis, Blind Willie McTell and many more. Chris's set is always made more interesting through his skill as raconteur and storyteller.
