About the Artist

Dan Possumato has been playing Irish music for over 30 years at small and large venues in Ireland, Alaska, Western Canada and the continental USA. He plays the not-yet-extinct one row melodeon, as well as the two row button accordion, both in the old “push-and-draw” manner. This makes him somewhat of an anachronism, but he enjoys it because it is a link to all the great Irish musicians who are now gone but who preserved the music for future generations. Dan's five CDs of Irish traditional music have all received favorable press and radio reviews, and tracks from these recordings are regularly played on radio stations in Ireland, the UK, Canada, the USA and elsewhere.

London-Irishman Jamie O’Brien’s unique and expansive song
repertoire is not limited to Irish, but includes other traditions
such as English, Scottish, and Hawaiian. He has performed
throughout the British Isles, Europe, mainland USA, The Hawaiian
Islands and Western Canada. He has established a deserved
reputation as a fine singer and inventive accompanist, and he is a mainstay of the folk scene in his adopted hometown of Tucson, Arizona. In 2016 Jamie's CD Celtic shades won the Hawaii Media Arts BIMA award for World Music Album of the Year.
Jamie and Dan have an undeniable knack for connecting with
audiences large and small, as their musical performances engage listeners in an interactive dialogue from start to finish!
