Jenna Moynihan is widely regarded as one of the best of the best in the new generation of acoustic musicians. Versatile and inventive, her fiddling style draws strongly from the Scottish tradition, but is in no way bound by it. Folk Radio UK said of her playing, “…from the first time you hear Moynihan, it is clear that her playing is resonating straight from the depths of her soul.” Jenna is a graduate of Berklee College of Music, and currently calls Boston home. She’s performed and collaborated with Mairi Chaimbeul, Darol Anger & The Furies, Hamish Napier, Old Blind Dogs, Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards, Phil Cunningham, and as a soloist at Symphony Hall with the Boston Pops. In 2015 Jenna released her debut solo album, Woven.
Vogue magazine calls musician Owen Marshall “A guitar/mandolin/banjo/bouzouki player rivaled in character only by the occasional three-pronged carrot” (Vogue 2009). vHis music has appeared on NPR’s “Thistle and Shamrock,” BBC television, and the back of his left elbow has appeared on MTV. In addition to being a respected performer, Owen is in demand at music camps throughout New England and the U.S., where he shares his approach to accompanying traditional music.
