Dan Lowery is originally from Dallas, Texas and has been playing Irish music for nearly twenty years. He is one of the top flute players in the U.S. today, as well as an accomplished guitarist and singer. A full-time musician, Dan currently divides his time between playing with the Bronx Boys in St. Louis and staying up all night playing tunes in New York City.

 

Guitarist, bouzouki player and singer Alan Murray hails from Glasgow, Scotland, where he grew up playing Irish music and Rock n’ Roll. His talent was recognized early on by the local ceili band, and he was invited to join them at the young age of 12. Eventually moving to New York City, he has established himself as an in-demand guitarist on the Irish music scene. He currently plays and tours around the world with many of the finest traditional musicians today, including Niall and Cillian Vallely, Eileen Ivers, and the Battlefield Band.

Isaac Alderson was born and raised in Chicago, where he grew up learning the uilleann pipes, Irish flute, and whistle. He moved to New York City at the age of 18 and dove into the city’s vibrant Irish music scene. In 2002, at 19 years of age, Isaac won the coveted All-Ireland Senior Championships on all three of his instruments, and his career as a performer began. At 22, he became a full-time member of famed fiddler Eileen Ivers’s band and toured with her for two years. In 2008, he went his own way to pursue other musical interests, and now he performs full time as a member of Comas, The Yanks, Ensemble Galilei, Celtic Crossroads, and of course, The Bronx Boys. Isaac has toured across the US, Canada, Ireland, and has also performed in Belgium, Holland, the UK, Denmark, Italy, Spain, and Colombia.
