Laura Byrne's flute playing has been described as "effortless, powerful and engaging." Highly regarded on both sides of the Atlantic for her mastery of the Irish traditional flute and whistle. Laura Bryne is based in Baltimore, Maryland and recently won a Maryland State Arts Council award for solo performance. She has performed throughout North America and in Ireland and released her second solo recording, Lucky Day, in July 2010. A sought-after teacher, Laura has taught at the Catskills Irish Arts Week in East Durham, NY, and at workshops across the U.S. Laura has committed herself to the playing of the older generation of flute players through countless trips to Ireland and from close study of the emigrees to the United States. Her mentors and influences are many and include East Galway flute player Mike Rafferty, Sligo/Roscommon style flute player, Catherine McEvoy, Matt Molloy of Chieftains fame, and East Galway style button accordionist Billy McComiskey. Through her direct study of this unbroken musical lineage and because of her devotion to the teaching and promulgation of all aspects of Irish musical culture, Laura is a well-known mainstay in Maryland's vibrant Irish music scene.

Rose Conway Flanagan is a traditional Irish fiddler from Rockland County, New York who originally began music lessons as a child with Martin Mulvilhill while was growing up in the Bronx. She further developed her Sligo style of playing with the help of Martin Wynne and her older brother Brian. Great New York fiddlers like Andy McGann and Paddy Reynolds were also frequent visitors to the Conway household, which was the Bronx version of a "teach ceoil" (house of music) in the best Irish tradition.

Rose currently has a large music school in her hometown of Pearl River where she is hard at work preparing the next generation of great traditional musicians, which include several All-Ireland winners and medalists.

Rose has performed and been an instructor at the Alaska fiddle camp, The Catskills Irish Arts week, The Swannanoa Gathering, The O'Flaherty Irish Music Retreat, Fiddle and Pick Irish Camp, and Mad for Trad week in the U.S. She has also taught at the DeDanaan Dance Camp in Vancouver, British Columbia and Scoile Eigse in Cavan, Ireland. She has also taught workshops at the Northeast Tional, and at various CCE conventions. Rose also runs seisuns, plays with her group the Green Gates Ceili Band and performs in various concerts throughout the area.
