The group’s members have been sharing their eclectic repertoire of sea chanteys, contemporary pieces, and songs from the British Isles and the Appalachian Mountains with New York City audiences for decades individually and in other bands. They are excited to debut as an ensemble at Porch Stomp.

    Liz Hanley Liz Hanley & Jefferson Hamer. Hanley is a Brooklyn based violinist, fiddle player, singer and composer. She was trained in classical violin and voice earning a BM from NYU in performance. She was steeped in Irish and American folk traditions growing up in Boston with her fiddle playing dad Andy Hanley and tumbled in the rock n roll dryer along the way. Called “a hallmark of progressive folk-rock” by Vents Magazine, Hanley has toured globally. Hanley’s debut album, The Ecstasy of St Cecilia, features Jefferson Hamer and Eamon O’Leary of the Murphy Beds.
    A guitarist, songwriter, and troubadour of many genres, Hamer has spent the greater part of three decades searching for a song to sing. He has immersed in traditional Irish music, playing guitar accompaniment and singing at sessions atSwift’s, Brass Monkey, and the 11th St. Bar. His songwriting and lead guitar work is featured on the self-produced record Alameda, and continues in collaboration with Boston-based Session Americana.

They include fiddle tunes, gospel, topical, work, maritime, protest, ballads, love and kids' songs. Some came from centuries ago and it is not known who wrote them. They've been passed down orally, and often altered along the way. Some come from contemporary writers from the 20th century up to today. All are the sounds of the people.<
    Gaya Sriskanthan Gaya Sriskanthan was inspired by the stories and song of working people the world over. She draws from broad (across time and space) traditions of folk music looking at the lives and struggles of everyday people.
