Liz and Dan Faiella bring to life the traditional music of their roots, with crisp vocals, mesmerizing fingerstyle guitar, lyrical fiddling, and exhilarating rhythmic drive. Their music calls to mind the convivial grange hall contradances of their youth in New Hampshire, while conveying a wistfulness for their ancestral Ireland.
Liz and Dan have taken the mainstage at premier folk venues throughout New England, including Club Passim, the Acadia Trad Festival, Maine Celtic Celebration, Little Sea Folk Festival, the Seacoast Irish Festival, and the Boston Celtic Music Festival. They are sought-after teachers, sharing their craft with students at camps, festivals, and community music schools.
Responsive and down-to-earth in performance, they often disregard their setlist and rely on sibling intuition, anticipating where the music is leading them, with a nod—or a sharp nudge, if that’s too subtle. They navigate with their audiences through haunting ballads, the intricate compositions of Turlough O’Carolan, snappy and danceable jig and reel medleys, and poignant slow airs. They play with detail and polish, with heart and effervescence.
Their debut album, At Long Last (2018), explores heartache, wonder, and joy, expressed through the traditional music they love.
“a chill Irish vibe and a ‘going-places’ groove”
