Open the Door for Three is the culmination of years on the road, comprised of unearthed tunes, new arrangements of great songs, homages to the musicians and bands they grew up listening to, and the signature sound of a trio of good friends playing great music together. Though the trio is brand new, its members are mainstays of the Irish music scene. These three have distinguished themselves over the last two decades, having played with Celtic Legends, Riverdance, Cherish the Ladies, Secret Garden, Anúna, Celtic Legends, and The New York Pops, as well as mainstream pop-artists Don Henley, Paula Cole, Bonnie Raitt, and Josh Groban
They have performed in venues around the world: on Broadway, at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center, at L’Olympia and Palais de Congrès in Paris, Malaysian rainforest festivals, piping tionóil in Ireland, theatres from Shanghai to São Paulo, cruise ships in the Caribbean, and even a bullring in Mallorca.
Open the Door for Three mine tune books, collections, and recordings to find old and new tunes and new and old songs. They add to those discoveries Liz’s compositions, harmonies and the fire and finesse she brings to Irish fiddle music, Kieran’s encyclopedic knowledge of tunes and the uilleann piping tradition, and Pat’s rhythmic bedrock bouzouki and world-class singing.
