Dubliner Brian Furlong has been playing guitar, bass and whistle for as long as he can remember. His musical journey began with The Billy Barry stage school and performing in pantomime at the The Gaiety Theatre. At 15 years of age he started joining sessions with the likes of Sean Óg Mc Kenna and Liam Rowsome and the trad spark became a flame. He has gone on to play with many Irish trad legends.

Christy Sheridan has worked as a professional musician for more then 25 years and has toured extensively in America, Asia, and Europe as a member of renowned band The Bards. Renowned for his wonderful touch on both Mandolin and banjo.

Stephen Sheridan, (Christy’s son) is one of the finest classically trained guitar players in the country. Stephen has been playing in venues all over the county for many many years and has a natural feel for accompanying any song
