Brothers Dunne

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 escapades 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!

Kinvara

Kinvara is a four-person group that took inspiration for it's name from a small Irish town in County Galloway on the west coast of Ireland. Theyhave been working together as a band for over 17 years. Instrumentation includes whistles, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, octave mandolin, the bodhran (Irish drum) and banjo. They play arrangements of traditional sets of jigs and reels and sing several rousing traditional Irish songs. They also enjoy and include some of the newer Irish music that has emerged over the past few years.Band members include Grant Crowley, Sue Davis, Mark Masterson, and Dennis O'Malley. All live in NE Portland, Oregon and all are Americans made of some Irish or Welsh parts. They have played at several local pubs and restaurants in their area and have performed at several community functions, private parties, churches, schools, and farmers markets. Recently, they were invited to play their first wake, which they found to be an honor. After over 170 performances and producing two CD's, they now respond with a steady confidence to the request "play something you know".
