"Two of Colorado's premiere traditional Irish musicians bring you music fresh from the source. Jon Sousa and Adam Agee journey through the Irish idiom on fiddle, guitar, tenor banjo, and more."

Adam's music is alive, imperfect, dynamically fluid, and colorful. Raised in the mountains of Santa Cruz, California and Boulder, Colorado, Adam came first to Ireland in 2004 and based himself in Ennis, County Clare. He has been teaching and performing for the last 10 years.

Jonathan Sousa fell in love with music from an early age, first listening to the 70's folk albums in his mother's record collection then journeying on to rock music and heavy metal after which passing through the realms of electronic dance music making his way on to West African percussion and finally landing in the world of traditional Irish music (He regularly returns to the previous realms). Jon holds a BA from Naropa University in Music and an MA in Irish Traditional Music Performance from the University of Limerick in Ireland.

Regardless of the type of event, Jon and Adam's emotional connection to their instruments and energy in the music they play is awe-inspiring, and without a doubt, will shoot straight to your heart and get you dancing like never before!

"The first time I arranged to have Jon and Adam play at my house, the
encores lasted late into the evening. As a fan of traditional Celtic music, I know I am not alone is saying that I feel like I am back in Doolin, Ireland when I listen to them play. There is magic in the air when Adam's bow meets his fiddle. Equally so when Jon's banjo or guitar lights up the room. Both Jon and Adam have returned many times to the "Featherstone concert hall" and I hope they come back again and again."
