These are two of most highly regarded traditional Irish musicians performing and teaching today. Mick Moloney was born in Ireland and now lives in the United States. Along with being a singer and player of the 4-string banjo and mandolin, he holds a doctorate in folklore from the University of Pennsylvania and regularly takes groups to Ireland to experience first-hand the music and culture of his native land.
Born in New York City and then spending her childhood in San Francisco, Athena Tergis was classically trained on the violin but later fell in love with Irish and Scottish fiddle music. A former solo fiddler for the Broadway production of Riverdance, she tours with Mick Moloney and other musicians when not tending to her winery with her husband in the hills of Tuscany, Italy.
