Irish traditional music played by Dave and Susan Gilligan. Instruments are fiddle, guitar, harmonica. We perform dance tunes (jigs, reels, etc.) and songs both from and about Ireland. We have been playing and recording together, both as a duet and as part of other bands, for at least 15 years. Types of performances include private (e.g. weddings, receptions, parties, rehearsal dinners) and public (e.g. pubs, libraries, festivals, concerts). Although our repertoire is traditional Irish, we are flexible and can incorporate pub and pop songs, Appalachian tunes or old favorites by request.
