Playing Old Tyme Fiddle Tunes, singing songs from years past and a collection of old time country songs, they have made a name for themselves as a musical sensation that gets your toes tapping and your spirit soaring. They began performing as a family at local venues about eight years ago, after being inspired by the performance of another musical family, the Leahy's. Music has been a large part of family life, starting with piano as young children, before Leahy inspired them to take up the fiddle. Now the house has two pianos, over ten fiddles, guitars, a mandolin, several accordions, step dance shoes, and a variety of other instruments.
