$300 - $3000 per event
Initially formed by Lindsay Straw (bouzouki, guitar, vocals) as a way to explore her own interest in the interconnected streams of folk music in Ireland, Britain, and America, the Ivy Leaf is now a young stalwart of traditional Irish music in Boston, featuring Caroline O'Shea (flute, whistle, vocals), Armand Aromin (fiddle, whistle), and Dan Accardi (fiddle, concertina). The members' diverse backgrounds in Berklee College of Music, All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoil competitions, and the rich Irish culture of Boston combine to produce a sound that is "vibrant and sure-footed, and tailored to fully reveal each tune's character and personality" (Sean Smith, Boston Irish Reporter). Highly sought after to play for weddings and other private events, the Ivy Leaf has also been featured at prestigious local venues such as Club Passim in Cambridge, the Irish Ceilidh Club of Rhode Island, and the New England Folk Festival. The group also teaches for the Boston Reynolds-Hanafin-Cooley branch of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann music school, as well as private lessons in the area.

Their first album, released in March of 2012, "features nimble playing and skilled arrangements that convey a great enthusiasm for traditional Irish music" (Dan Neely, Irish Echo). It is available for purchase from Amazon, CDBaby, and iTunes.

I thought they were wonderful. They played beautifully; they were generous with they time; and as accommodating as you could ask for. AND NICE!

Future brides, I highly recommend the Ivy Leaf to play at your ceremony and confidently recommend them for other types of special events as well. They played during our wedding ceremony earlier this month in a Catholic church and the music was perfect -- very heartfelt and beautiful, it was just what I was hoping for. In addition, I found Lindsay, the point of contact for the band, very easy to work with and friendly, which is invaluable in the midst of wedding planning mayhem. She helped me find the best two songs for the procession and seemed as enthusiastic as I was for the Big Day! Thank you, all, you played a very special role on a very special day. -E
