Their show blends the music of Ireland and Scotland with some of their own original material, drawing on multiple genres to produce a unique sound that has been described as a 'larger than life' and 'brisk, lean, and exceedingly lovely.'
They have appeared live on NHPR's 'The Folk Show,' been features on WMUR's 'New Hampshire Chronicle,' and performed regularly at listening rooms, pubs, and Celtic festivals around New England.

Make a Christmas Wish Come True
At Christmastime, Hazel (2nd grader at Wilkins) wrote a letter to Santa. She asked for a couple of things for herself, and also for 1,000 blankets to donate to needy children.
Santa wrote back saying that he was busy with the holiday but would see what he could do about the charitable request in the new year.
In January, “Santa” contacted the Amherst Town Library and asked for some help. Marie Grellla was enlisted to run with the project. Marie has put collection boxes in the library and in the schools. She’s also started contacting some local organizations asking for their support.
Collection boxes can be found at the library and the Amherst schools.
