John Neafsey, vocals and guitar. John is a native Rogers Parker and a lover of traditional Irish music and classic Chicago Blues. His favorite gig is a monthly Parting Glass session at Cunneen’s bar on Devon Avenue.

Jennifer Dunne, fiddle. Jen is a professional violinist who has played with the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic, the Ravinia Festival Orchestra (backing up Smokey Robinson, Earth, Wind and Fire, Sarah McLaughlin and Marco Antonio Solis), and the Chicago Philharmonic- among others. Jen’s love and admiration of Irish, Americana, and Bluegrass music are realized through this group.

Jim Szmurlo, mandolin, fiddle, guitar, vocals. Jim, a native Chicagoan, always had a passion for folk, roots, and ethnic music. Over the years he's played with various musical groups and friends, ranging from Appalachian, Balkan, Scandinavian, Americana, and whatever catches his ear. And his interest in playing instruments is as varied as his musical tastes.
