Paul Harty-Vocalist, guitarist, mandolinist, fiddler and harmonicist, Paul Harty is a seasoned performer in the folk, Irish, country, swing and bluegrass worlds. Armed with a fine lead and harmony voice, as well as a droll sense of humor, his attitude is best summed up as, "music should be fun and expressive, otherwise why do it?" He has recorded and performed with the Jolly Rogues, Gloucester Hornpipe and Clog Society, Squeezebox Stompers, St. James Gate, Cowtippers, Kellsmen, Quarter Moon and Blunt Instruments.


Taylor Whiteside performed for many years both as a solo folksinger and in the Irish band Northeast Winds, which opened for The Clancy Brothers on their US tours from 1985 through 2000. He also played backup for Tommy Makem during Tommy's solo years. He also is a member of The Brandywine Singers, a folk quartet that was big in the Sixties, (now we're all well over sixty – no, scratch that) and performs frequently with The Shaw Brothers (New Hampshire's "ambassadors of folk"). For several years he performed in Newfoundland in clubs and on the CBC. He has also worked with Irish tenor John McNally, The Kingston Trio, Crystal Gayle, Peter Yarrow and Paul Stookey, Maloney, O'Connell and Keane, The Highwaymen, The Brothers Four, Jim Kweskin, Patrick Sky, Norman Blake, Dave Mallett, Utah Phillips, Josh White, Jr.

The Fiddling Thomsons are an award winning father and son musical team. They share a respect for folk music and cultures from around the world with a particular focus on the celtic music of their heritage. Ryan is a right handed former fiddle champion who relearned to play violin left handed after he suffered a disability involving his right shoulder. Brennish is his 16 year old son who began learning folk style violin at 2 years of age. Though violin is their main passion they are both multi-instrumentalists who play fluently on several other folk instruments
