Description

Daoine (pronounce "DEE-neh") is the Irish word for "people". The band Daoine is a group of musicians that love to get together and play great Irish music and to share it with our listeners - from dance music like jigs, reels and hornpipes, to hauntingly beautiful airs and songs. Irish traditional music that, while played for centuries in Ireland and America, continues to inspire and continues to find a new voice with each generation. Our music has a fire and energy to it, while striving to stay true to its roots. Our instruments include fiddle, uilleann (Irish) pipes, bodhran, whistle, flute, guitar and banjo.

Members:

Brian Szura
Brian lives in Highland Park, NJ and has been playing Uilleann (Irish) Pipes since 1999. He first “caught the bug” and fell in love with the sound of the pipes as a child in Rutherford, having found an old album of the great piper Finbar Furey in the stacks of the public library. Brian first learned to play uilleann pipes from fiddler Willie Kelly in Boonton, NJ and is now furthering his skills under the guidance of internationally renowned piper Ivan Goff who resides in Brooklyn, NY. Brian is a regular Irish session leader and attendee and has performed with various musical groups including his current traditional Irish group, Daoine. He was also Musical Director for a piece performed by the Lustig Dance Theatre entitled “Invisible Fields” and played to audiences in Princeton, Philadelphia and other venues throughout New Jersey. Brian has been awarded a Folk Arts Apprenticeship grant through the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and looks forward to intensifying his study of this unique and challenging instrument.

Joe Dunne
A resident of Manasquan, NJ, Joe has studied traditional music percussion (Irish bodhran) and Irish accordion with a variety of legendary musicians for more than 13 years. He has performed professionally since 2004, including appearances at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC and Princeton's McCarter Theater, venues in New York City, and music festivals in New Jersey, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Max Carmichael
Currently living in Red Bank, NJ, Max has been playing guitar since the age of eleven. At age seventeen he immersed himself in blues under the guidance of Red Bank area musician Gary Wright. An interest in blues led to all forms of folk music from Appalachia to Canada to Europe. This thirst for music drove him to India where he studied Hindustani Classical music under Pandit Debashish Bhattacharya for three years. Currently Max focuses his time on the instrumental dance music and folk song traditions of Scotland, Ireland and Appalachia.

Phil Weir
Originally hailing from Scotland, Phil has settled in Keyport, NJ. Phil is a “fiddling extraordinaire” and has spent years immersed in traditional music including the music of Ireland, Scotland and the tunes of Cape Breton, Canada. Phil has performed in may venues, is a regular session leader at Lillie’s Victorian Establishment at Union Square in New York City, and teaches fiddle in order to pass along his knowledge and the love of the music to a future generation.
