With nearly two decades behind them, the group’s experience includes performances and workshops in Europe and Ireland, showcases in national and international music conferences, and regional tours in the east and west of the U.S., including their debut appearance at the world’s largest Irish festival in Milwaukee.
The duo has recorded two full-length albums, including Suantraí (2014) and Ceol na gCarad (2018).
Adam & Jon spent a year living in Ireland in 2008-2009, while Jon earned his Masters Degree in Traditional Irish Music Performance at the University of Limerick. Currently based in Boulder, the duo makes frequent visits back to Ireland, particularly immersing themselves in the music of County Clare, where they lived in the music-rich town of Ennis.
