John McCormick (C#D accordion) & Mary Vanorny (fiddle) play hours and hours of Traditional Irish Music, sure to get your toes tapping!  While you can catch us at sessions almost every week of the year, we also perform at festivals and private events.

Catch them as a duo or joined by a few friends as the Tune Pals!

Two-time Live Ireland Awards “Best Vocalist of the Year” (and fantastic flute player) Norah Rendell, fiddler Mary Vanorny and guitarist Brian Miller are the Two Tap Trio. Formed in 2007 and based in the Twin Cities, the Two Tap Trio mixes driving fiddle and flute duets with Norah’s singing, underpinned by intricate guitar and bouzouki backing.

 Founded by Laura MacKenzie, Brass Lassie is a bold trad band based in St. Paul/Minneapolis. The band combines traditional tunes, songs and style with dazzling modern horn lines, sparking their own genre of eclectic, remarkable music.

Mary Vanorny (fiddle) debuts her first solo fiddle album, First Light of Day, with 14 tracks of traditional Irish Music. The album features Mary and accompanist Ryan Johnson (piano) playing jigs, reels, and hornpipes with vigor and drive while balancing the intricacies of traditional sound on beautiful slow airs.  Other guests on the album include Chad McAnally (Irish harp), Claire Vanorny (All-Ireland fiddle), and Matt Wehling (mandolin).
