Randal Bays is an American born, Irish style fiddler who brings power and passion to the old tradition. He's devoted many years to learning not just the tunes, but more importantly the feeling of Irish traditional music as handed down by the many great fiddlers and music lovers past and present. He renders the music with an intensity not commonly heard in any genre, powered by a deep love of the music, the culture, and a heartfelt wish to share this magnificent tradition with audiences.

Randal lives in Seattle and has been seriously obsessed with Irish fiddle music for most of his life. He’s recorded and toured in the US, Ireland and Europe with Martin Hayes, James Keane and Daithí Sproule (Fingal), James Kelly and many more. As Fiddler says, “Randal Bays is one of the finest Irish fiddlers one could ever hope to hear.”

Fiddle and Bow presiden Don Penzien has long been a top-flight performer of traditional Irish music. He frequently tours nationally playing concerts and festivals with The Máirtín de Cógáin Project, The John Whelan Band, Legacy, Captain Mackey’s Goatskin and String Band, and now with Gailfean. Don’s dexterous work on DADGAD guitar provides solid, driving rhythms to traditional tunes as well as perceptive and sensitive accompaniments to songs and airs. When called upon, he also adds whistle, bodhran and vocals to arrangements.
