Friends and comrades–Our last Thursday of the month residency at the Dubliner Pub will be rollicking as in days of yore!  We’ll have our first performance at the Gunflint Tavern in Grand Marais at the end of the month, and are very much looking forward to some time on the North Shore!  Kerri Joy will be joined by Quentin Vestur, a Breton harper, visiting for the next few weeks, and you can find out where they will be sharing their musings with Highland and Uilleann piper Ryan Behnke as Belle Chance Trio.  We have really been enjoying our Thursday dinner sets at the Claddagh Pub!  We’ll be there the first three Thursdays in May, and hope to bring some guest musicians!  We are so blessed to be roving and in fine company!  We are also very much looking forward to joining the throng at In the Heart of the Beast’s Annual May Day Festival.  If you are a fan of Dr. Who, we’re playing at the CONsole Room, a convention for enthusiasts over Mother’s Day weekend.  On May 16th, we are joining the SERFs at the Wild Tymes to pre-party for the Flogging Molly show next door at the newly renovated Palace Theater!  The following weekend will mark the rise of the phoenix that is Tom’s Burned Down Bar on Madeline Island, where we’ll be performing Friday and Saturday 5.19 & 5.20 celebrating their unique history and cheering on the Mad Isle Marathoners.  Tell stories to your neighbors and strangers, listen to each other, create sacred space for those your life touches.  Take root and reach out!  If you’ve not yet had a chance, visit to hear our debut/demo album.  We are seriously close with recording our new CD, Banish Misfortune, and plan to release it late spring/early summer!  Hope to catch up with you soon.


We render radiant, expansive harmonies for strings and voices, original and traditional tunes and folk ballads, favorites and downright far-fetched selections suited to many occasions.  For ceremonies and celebrations, festivals and front porch parlors, we bring you roots inspired musings that are grounded in Traditional Celtic and Americana sensibilites.  Exploring with an independent spirit, roving over the wild and storied landscapes of life, collecting, tinkering, and translating our heritage, we envibe with the rhythms of sugarplums dropped in the forest.

  1. Hello Again Wonderful Women;

    This is Tom from the Burned Down Cafe’ telling you that you & your music are wonderful.

    I Love the CD but must give it to a friend. Another Female fiddler. She will also LOVE it. 1-715/209-1074

    Please autograph 2 more for us here at the Burned Down Cafe’ and let me know how you would like me to pay for them. Is there just the one CD? If there are two CDs please autograph 2 of the second CD and put them onto the bill as well.

    1. Tom! Just saw this. There is only the one CD, and I’ll a couple more to Box 222. Probably the easiest way to pay for them would be to tip us out on We’d be honored to come up and play again next season! What a blast–my kids loved every second on the island, as did we!

      Thanks again for hosting, so proud of the results with the Enbridge EIS requirement. Playing at your place was definitely a highlight of our summer, and when we get busy with the next recording project, we’ll make sure you know about it 🙂 Hats off to you sir! Dee

  2. such beautiful voices & harmonies, amazing pregger guitar, oh, & barefoot fiddling is a slice of heaven! IrishFest was blessed by you! Thanks.

  3. Dee and Kerri, you were amazing last night. The people who attended our “Honoring the Ancestors” event just loved you and your music. We hope to have you back and support your wild work!
    Blessings of the dark nights,
    a savage daughter
