Welcome to some of the best Irish music outside of Ireland (or inside, for that matter). Rich Dodson plays fiddle, guitar, tenor banjo (Irish version), mandolin, and several other string things. Dave (Mitch) Miller adds another fiddle, as well as bodhran, to the mix. Ken Purcell does melody and bass on the keyboards, as well as tin whistle. Laura Murphy adds her incredible voice to the instruments, as do the other three members of the group.

Probably the best family folk band in the greater Lehigh Valley, and even further, these people will take you back to the "good old days." Picture yourself on your neighbors back porch, or the annual church picnic, or that old time festival you heard so much about. Listen to all those strings played with different tones, in different styles, and on different instruments. Join Tom, Betty and Nathan for some family fun.
