Tommy and Tony Dunne have been performing live around the Northwest since the ‘80s. The brothers learned music in grade school by virtue of the good nuns at St. Thomas More with spiritual assistance from Lennon, McCartney, and the Clancy Brothers -- The British invasion meets the Irish uprising!

“Sister” Mary Harvard was let out of the family’s basement and joined the brothers’ musical escapad...es in 2006, contributing her own folk influence, added instrumentation, and part 3 to the buttery tight vocals.

Together the trio provides hours of entertainment, playing a variety of music with an emphasis on Irish folk, a strong emphasis on vocal harmonies, and an even greater emphasis on FUN! Pure entertainment... whether you’re Irish or not!

Biddy on the Bench
Feb

to Feb 4

Biddy on the Bench

Live on Stage... Music starts at 8PM

The versatile combination of banjo, guitar, mandolin, tin whistle and four part vocal harmony lends itself equally to high-energy Irish rebel songs and shanties, lively session tunes, and mournful gaelic ballads. Grounded primarily in the folk/traditional style of Irish music pioneered by such bands as "The Dubliners", "Planxty", and "The Bothy Band", Portland's own "Biddy on the Bench" breathes life and authenticity into old standbys of the genre and lesser-known tunes alike.

Music Starts @ 8pm.

I love playing and seeing the impact I have on people in my audience. In the USA, I watch people as they are transported to places I create by singing them songs from their forefathers, places and experiences they have heard of from their parents or grandparents. They still have an emotional bond to the “old country” where they have never lived, and a piece of their spirit still wants to connect them there. It’s wonderful to see.

Sky In The Road

You could say it was love at first note. When Sky in the Road founding members Daniel Rhiger and Rahmana Wiest, both singers and musicians since childhood, met they were providing back-up vocals and instrumentation for another local singer/songwriter. It quickly became apparent that there was magic in this "harmonic convergence" and Dan and Rah, as they are known by their friends, soon became musical partners and eventually life partners.

Stark Raving Plaid

Stark Raving Plaid is the brainchild of John Moen, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, teacher, and all-around great guy.  The idea was to combine traditional Celtic music with modern-day ideas, all while keeping the tunes entertaining and upbeat.  The search began to find musicians that could handle such a task...

This resulted in combining the talents of Christopher Peck, an established mandolin, guitar, and brass player, Brysen Bristow, a self-acclaimed party animal, art lover and killer bassist, Alice Tilton, one of the most amazing fiddle players in town, and Stu Weitzman, formerly of The Ultimate Sellout Band playing the drums on this creative journey.
