JOHNNY B. CONNOLLY is well known as an exciting and accomplished button accordionist. Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, Johnny has performed or recorded with such traditional greats as The Chieftains, Altan, Anam, and fiddler Kevin Burke. Now living in Portland, Oregon, he has toured with such artists as Kevin Burke and Ged Foley, Patrick Ourceau, Aidan Brennan, and Casey Neill.

Johnny's CD, "Bridgetown," came out on Green Linnet Records in 2001 to universally glowing reviews. A sparkling collection of Irish tunes and French musettes, it was called "the most exciting solo debut from an Irish artist in years" by the Irish Herald.

JEFF MOORE is a highly sought-after accompanist living in Austin, Texas and has performed with many of the foremost Irish and Scottish music ensembles and musicians in the Southwest. An accomplished guitarist and singer, Jeff has also accompanied international touring musicians such as Cape Breton fiddler Jerry Holland, Dublin-born Irish accordion legend James Keane, master Irish fiddler James Kelly and most recently Irish music icon Joe Burke.  

Jeff's solo recording "The Dove's Perch" released on Fleagull Records in 2006 was a long-awaited compilation of melodies and songs accompanied by some of traditional music's top players: James Keane, Brian McNeil, John Williams, and Mark Stone.
