Dante and Eros have been playing music their whole lives, both
picked up a string instrument at the age of 3. In addition to cello
and fiddle, they play guitar, bodhran (Irish drum), banjo, cajon
(boxdrum), mandolin, percussion, and vocals. Performing,
recording and arranging are some of their favorite things to do!
Their love and understanding for traditional music combined with
their awareness of modern and popular music (ranging from rock,
jazz, EDM, and more) yields an inventive and contemporary sound
that is still true to their traditional roots.
Dante and Eros have performed extensively across the Pacific
Northwest at festivals and contradances. Some highlights include
performing at the Northwest Folklife Festival, Spokane Fall Folk
Festival, Wintergrass Music Festival, The Olympia Old Time
Festival, The Living Stage, and Olympia Arts Walk Fiddle Festival,
as well as opening for Celtic trio sensation Kalos, and Scandinavian
folk legends SVER. They have also performed alongside Alasdair
Fraser and Natalie Haas, Darol Anger and Rushad Eggleston, Moira
Smiley, and more.

Produced by renowned Celtic music
star Ryan McKasson, whose expertise in arranging and recording
music results in unique, innovative, and energetic arrangements of
new and old tunes.
Katie McNally manages to play so clean & groovy at the same time, and the whole trio together has such a warm and cohesive sound. Makes me miss cozy trad sessions in friends' basements. A romp of an album. andpersand
