Maggie Sansone brings a unique beauty and vision to the ancient music of the Celts. Her albums ring with a Renaissance spirit, Celtic melodies, and a jazzy new crossover into what she calls "cool Celtic." It’s a fusion of ancient sounds and modern sensibility, fueled by the innovative use of old and new instruments. At the center of it all, there are the percussive yet melodious sounds of Maggie's wooden mallets dancing across the dulcimer's seventy strings. Ms. Sansone has recorded over a dozen albums both solo and with other recording artists including Bonnie Rideout and Ensemble Galilei.

Sharon Knowles has been playing the clarsach, the Celtic Harp, for over twenty years. She is a harp tutor for The House of Musical Tradition in Washington, D.C. and has performed at the Library of Congress and The Supreme Court of the United States. With over thirty years of devotion to traditional fiddle styles, including a Grammy-nominated album, Andrea Hoag has earned an international reputation as both a tradition-bearer and innovator. Winning the Washington area "Best Traditional Folk Instrumentalist," her music has been featured on NPR's All Things Considered and Performance Today, at the Kennedy Center and Library of Congress, and at numerous venues around the U.S. and Sweden
