ABOUT THE MUSICIANS
A former member of Chulrua, the Doon Ceili Band, the Two Tap Trio, and the Máirtín de Cógáin Project, Nathan Gourley started playing music at age five. While living in Minnesota he had the opportunity to collaborate with such renowned players as Paddy O’Brien of Chulrua, Daithi Sproule of Altan, Brian Miller of Bua, and Norah Rendell of The Outside Track. Now a resident of Boston, Nathan has recently released 'Life Is All Checkered' with Laura Feddersen, 'Copley Street' with Joey Abarta and 'The Truckley Howl' with Mairead Hurley and John Blake. He has taught and performed at festivals in Ireland, New Zealand, and throughout the United States on both fiddle and guitar.
Laura Feddersen grew up in a musical family in Bloomington, Indiana. After spending much of her childhood asleep in her father’s bass case at dances and music parties, she took up the fiddle herself, playing for the square and set dances in her hometown. Laura has since traveled extensively throughout the country playing and teaching fiddle, and is renowned for her unique and skillful interpretation of Irish, American, and Irish-American traditional music. She now resides in Boston where she plays the pubs, parties, and park benches with some of the best traditional musicians in the country.
