Irish music accordion virtuoso Jimmy Keane’s accomplishments are far reaching. He has achieved astonishing and unprecedented success in competitive playing, having won five consecutive All-Ireland titles on the piano accordion. Many regard Keane as the premier exponent of traditional Irish music on the piano accordion. The voice of Ireland, singer-songwriter Christy Moore, described Jimmy's playing as "wild and beautiful."

Dave Curley, a multi-instrumentalist, singer and dancer from Corofin, Co. Galway, has been making big waves in the Irish music scene in Ireland, Europe and the USA in the last number of years.  Dave became a creative member of award-winning bands SLIDE and One For The Foxes who performed in Rockford this past September.  He also regularly performs with Grammy Award winner Moya Brennan of Clannad. More recently, Dave has also recorded with producer Donal Lunny and Grammy award Winners Ron Block, Jeff Taylor and Buddy Greene. His most recent record, 'A Brand New Day’, marks a new beginning in his musical career and showcases his vocals and writing style which has a contemporary sensibility whilst rooted in tradition.
