Dan Isaacson and Peter Brice, uilleann pipes and accordion duet. October 22 9pm EDT

Baltimore based Dan Isaacson plays the uilleann pipes, concert flute, and the bouzouki. He began studying traditional Irish music in Boston, where he learned from some of the most esteemed musicians in the tradition. Incorporating their many dialects into his own playing, he developed a style that is tradition-steeped but thoroughly individual. Music has been composed for him by Tommy Peoples and Billy McComiskey, two of his most influential mentors. He has produced and played on three recordings, appeared on NPR and Irish television, and has been performing in venues from small pubs to the Kennedy Center for the better part of 17 years.

Peter Brice plays Irish traditional music on the button accordion and sings old songs in a wide-ranging English language style. Having learned from Brooklyn-born accordionist Billy McComiskey, he steered his playing in the direction of Galway accordion pioneers Joe Cooley, Kevin Keegan, and Raymond Roland. Likewise, with guidance from his teachers Dónal Maguire and Louis Killen, he developed a repertoire of narrative songs thick with history and rich in music. On both fronts, Peter collects avidly from books and manuscripts, and has a store of rare tunes and odd settings. In 2011, he founded the New Century American Irish-Arts Company (newcenturyirisharts.com) to promote and produce Irish Traditional music and dance in Maryland. He graduated from the Peabody Conservatory Preparatory program,
and holds a BA in Irish Traditional Music and Dance from the University of Limerick.
