Amy Shoemaker plays bouzouki Siobhan McKinney plays flute Karen Reshkin plays fiddle Veronica Savoie plays guitar
The Ladies are: Siobhán McKinney on flute, who hails from Kerry, in the Sliabh Luachra region of Ireland; Karen Reshkin fiddle, late of the band Baltiorum; versatile guitarist Veronica Savoie; and songwriter Amy Shoemaker on bouzouki. All four are vocalists as well as instrumentalists and blend their voices in rich harmony on contemporary songs and old ballads. Together they perform a wide range of traditional Irish tunes, from the baroque melodies of Irish composer Turlough O'Carolan to exuberant jigs, raucous reels, and the breathless Kerry polka!
