Although only in their early 30s, Kevin Buckley and Ian Walsh have over 20 years of experience playing together, most of which they attained on stage at John D. McGurk’s. Walsh grew up playing Traditional Irish fiddle in both St. Louis and his father’s home in Ireland. In more recent years, his expanded interest in Bluegrass music culminated in a 2011 Rocky Grass fiddle championship. Buckley, another St. Louis native, has had similar competitive success, including an All-Ireland fiddle title, and accolades as a singer/songwriter and guitarist in more recent years with his band Grace Basement. Utilizing fiddles, bouzoukis, mandolins and guitars, both musicians play Irish music fluently in the Traditional style while incorporating other elements of folk and acoustic music into their performances to form a thrilling and unique take on age old traditions as well as modern sounds.

Talented guitarist singer Alan Murray hails from Glasgow in Scotland, where he grew up playing whistle from an early age. Alan’s talent for Irish Music was recognized early on by his local ceili band, and he was invited to join them at the age of 12. He played tin-whistle with the band for the next nine years, but eventually turned to the guitar and bouzouki as his main instruments.
His interest in the guitar led him to study instrument building and repair in Glasgow for two years, after which he moved to the U.S.A. to further pursue his musical career. Alan was soon playing with some of the best musicians on the Traditional Irish scene in America.
Alan has toured extensively across Ireland, Britain, Europe, Australia and the United States where he now calls home, building a reputation in New York City as one of the top Irish traditional guitarists and singers.
