Johnny Moynihan is a legendary figure in Irish music, since he founded Sweeney’s
Men with Terry Woods and Andy Irvine in the 1960s, he has been part of equally epochal groups such as Planxty and DeDanann.
Frank Hall began to learn the art of the bow, playing for square dances in southern Indiana in the early 1970s.
He journeyed with various old-time bands and dance troupes, occasionally dabbling in traditional Irish and Mexican fiddle styles.
Lena Ullman's playing and singing has been widely appreciated around the country since the founding of
the Higglers Jug Band in the 1980s. She is a masterful player of old-timey tunes and 'high lonesome' songs.
As one of Ireland’s best-known performers and traditional musicians of international
renown, Frankie Lane is the original front man of the legendary Fleadh Cowboys. With the fleadh cowboys he has supported legendary
performers such as Bob Dylan, U2, The Pogues, Emmylou Harris and B.B.King.
