AOIFE CLANCY has clearly established herself as one of the Divas of Irish and contemporary Folk Music. She comes from the small town of Carrick-on-Suir, in Co Tipperary, Ireland. Her father Bobby Clancy, of the legendary Clancy Brothers, placed a guitar in her hands at age ten, and by age fourteen there was no looking back. Aoife has been part of the acclaimed group Cherish the Ladies since 1995, and has shared the stage with some of the worlds greatest Irish performers including The Clancy Brothers, Christy Moore, the Furey Brothers, and Tommy Sands. She has also been a featured soloist with orchestras such as the Boston Pops and Cincinnati Pops.
BECKY CHACE has opened for such national acts as BB King, America, Judi Collins, Littlefeat, Delbert McClinton, and Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes.
KATH BUCKELL’s distinctive style draws upon many musical traditions, fusing folk, traditional Irish and country with the exotic sounds of the Middle East.
Winner of The New York City Song Slam, KATHLEEN PEMBLE has been featured artist on ‘New Music Mondays’ and on John Platt’s Sunday Breakfast. Kathleen has played at venues in NYC including The Bitter End, The Knitting Factory, The Cutting Room, and ‘Live on Stage’ at the World Trade Center concert series and has been a featured artist of the national music series Chick Singer Night. Regionally, she has played The Town Crier, The Turning Point, the Westchester Arts Council, The Pleasantville Music Festival, Mamapalooza Festival, Tribes Hill Festival, The Peekskill Coffee House, the Philipstown Depot Theatre, as well as several venues in Vermont. Kathleen also served as an officer of Tribes Hill for several years, contributing time and talent to the formative years of the organization.
“Winning melodies in the folk-pop vein delivered with strong, supple vocals made Ms. Pemble’s music compelling. Ms. Pemble started singing, and the ambient noise in the cafe disappeared as if by magic.” - The New York Times
