Michelle Mulcahy grew up in Abbeyfeale, County Limerick, Ireland. Michelle starting playing tin whistle at the age of 5 and currently plays the harp, accordion, concertina and fiddle and she mastered them all to All-Ireland champion standard. She also has a strong affinity for the sean-nos, or old style, of singing. The two airs on her CD Suaimhneas, Amhrán Mhaínse and An Bhuatais, the latter of which made the long-list for the BBC Folk Awards Best Traditional Track category this year, are played with the depth of someone who knows the story behind, as well as the lyrics to, the original songs. She is earning her PhD in arts practice at the University of Limerick.

Dana Lyn is an esteemed traditional Irish fiddler and was featured on The Raw Bar and Geanntrai, two documentaries on traditional Irish music that aired on national television in Ireland.
