$150 - $5000 per event
Appearing on stage at the largest 3 day Irish Festival in the world, in Dublin Ohio, we are pleased to play for your house parties as well ! From singalongs to Irish old style (sean nós) performances in Irish, we fit the occasion with one to five band members!
Complete shows in both the Irish language (gaeilge), and in English. (Note: We produced the first Irish language song show of its kind in the midwest and Mikes 'Irish Song: Traditional and Sean Nós' ranks among the top 10 Irish Traditional Albums of Song for 2013, standing proudly in the Irish Traditional Music Archives in Dublin today.)

The Irish Roots Cafe was ranked as the #1 celtic group in the U.S. on Reverbnation (from May 2012 to January 2013).

The Floating Band Members, available as possible:
Mike O'Laughlin is a singer of old style 'Sean Nós' song; learned by ear, sung solo in Irish, with historical context. He sang with the Irish Roots Cafe in the first all Irish (gaeilge) show in the midwest, and was honored to sing at the annual gaelic Mass in Kansas City. His album 'Irish Song: Traditional and Sean Nós' was placed in the Irish Traditional Music Archives on Sept. 1, 2013. It is one of the top 10 albums of Irish traditional song for 2013 (via Tradconnect). Mikes songs range over four centuries: from Irish, Scots, and Cajun, to American Vaudeville and Tin Pan Alley. A leading author of Irish works, he descends from the O'Laughlins and Kilmartins of Clare and the Donahues and Kellihers of Kerry. Mike can appear solo, or with the group.

Robert Koke - Our newest member, brings us the guitar, stringed instruments, and a family history of musical venues in the midwest.

Stevie Wilson Davis has played the violin since the age of 6, under the tutorage of her grandfather. Of Irish descent (O'Connor) on her father's side, Stevie was always interested in playing Irish, Scottish, and Cape Breten fiddle styles (the smokin' fast, toe-stomping tunes being her favorite!) She has taken master classes with fiddlers Martin Hayes, Liz Carroll, Liz Kane, and Randal Bays. She also played viola and violin for 10 years with the Kansas City Civic Orchestra. Stevie also has songs in Irish (gaeilge), and was a featured vocalist on the 'Irish Song...' album. She can't resist a good bike ride or mountain climb!

Roger Fox - Accordian, who appeared with the group at the Dublin, Ohio Irish Fest.

Alex Henry - guitar...

James Windels - flute, guitar
