They have had great success over the years including Best Folk Act at Ireland’s Music Awards. Their reputation has grown tremendously, and they have had enormous success both within the US and Ireland.

After eleven years at the top of their game, they are still selling out venues around the World to an ever- growing army of loyal fans.
