Sky in the Road creates music with an organic feel that reflects their unique native Oregonian perspective. Sky in the Road is the performing name of singer/songwriter duo Daniel Rhiger and Rahmana Wiest. Their musical collaboration spans two decades. They describe their music as folk-based winding its way through Americana, country, Celtic, world folk, gypsy jazz, new age, rock and reggae. Known for their tight, soaring vocal harmonies they fill out their sound with a variety of instrumentation including 6 and 12 string guitar, Irish bouzouki, banjo and East Indian harmonium.Their songs have received honors in competitions locally and nationally including Billboard Magazine's National Songwriting Contest. Sky in the Road has released several CDs including, "Time Travels", "Celtic Gypsy", "Where Everything is Music" and their 1996 debut, "Sky in the Road".They have toured nationally and have been heard at numerous concert halls, conferences, coffee houses and festivals including Winterfolk, Portland's Rose Festival, Artquake, The Bite, Seattle Folk Life, and many more. Their recordings have received airplay in major markets such as Boston, San Francisco and Portland and on numerous college radio stations nationwide. They have been featured on the nationally syndicated radio show River City Folk three times since 2001.
Channing Dodson started playing Irish traditional music as a teenager, taking up the flute and later the uilleann pipes. He has studied with some of the best pipers and flute players in both Ireland and the U.S. and has shared the stage with great musicians and singers like Kevin Burke and Paddy Keenan of the legendary Bothy Band, Nancy Conescu, Johnny B. Connolly, Brían Ó hAirt, and others.
A prize-winning student of Irish fiddle legend Kevin Burke, Brongaene Griffin studied Classical violin, Bluegrass, and Old-Time fiddle before spending 10 years living in Ireland and immersing herself in the Irish fiddle tradition. Since returning to America, she has performed with Gerry O'Beirne, John Williams (formerly of Solas), Johnny B. Connolly, Nancy Conescu, and Kevin Burke among many others. With one stellar album under her belt and another forthcoming, Bronnie Griffin brings a strong bow, melodic lift, and sheer joy to the world of Irish traditional music.
