When an award-winning fiddler teams up with an Irish guitarist who's performed on some of the world's most prestigious stages, there's bound to be some good music as a result. Add two more proficient musicians and the music just gets better. But it's something else that fuels the contagious fire of Bracken's music. It might be Gabe's passion and love for the sounds of home. It might be the sheer joy that his band members know comes from an authentic expression of an amazing culture. It might be the desire and commitment to take that expression to new heights and do it justice with excellent musicianship and unique arrangements. But whatever the reason, the listener always has a good time and that's what matters to us most.

So Gabe, Kathy, Del and Booie keep playing. Audiences all around California from pubs to festivals to small concerts have gotten a taste of the unique sound that blends Gabe's roots in country, Kathy's roots in classical music and Booie's roots in blues and bluegrass.

The tunes are mostly traditional, the delivery is not. But the Irish music expert will hear touches of Martin Hayes and Solas while other fans will hear the influence of Nickel Creek.
