Michelle is a very talented Irish dancer. Chris Foster has the same influences as mine. He's mostly interested in 1960s rock n' roll. The youngest member of the band is not yet 30 and the oldest is approaching 50, so we have a broad range of musical experience. We all bring those different influences in when we play.
The Irish are often nervous about having the appropriate face for the occasion. They have to be happy at weddings, which is a strain, so they get depressed; they have to be sad at funerals, which is easy, so they get happy.
