Connecticut-born singer and songwriter Dan Ringrose was reared on the music of the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, and by the age of three he had committed a good chunk of their repertoire to memory! His love of music developed early in life, and that love grew as he did. With a rich baritone voice that has been described as “stunning”, a mischievous sense of humor, and a comfortable command of the stage, Dan, for over 30 years has entertained crowds at festivals, fairs, and in concert halls and Public Houses from Connecticut to Gettysburg and most recently, Nashville's renowned Bluebird Café!

We are a 5 piece band that plays a lively mix of Irish and Scottish songs along with country and pop rock music. With multiple acoustic instruments and 4 lead vocalists who also provide terrific harmonies, we offer a variety of sounds during our performances where no two tunes in a row sound the same.
Our current repertoire has over six hours of music that includes traditional Irish and Scottish music (where we can add stories behind the songs) and contemporary Celtic music mixed with popular country and pop rock songs that everyone knows and sings along with us. We always provide a foot tapping, hand clapping, sing-along show for our audiences.
