Dana Lyn & Kyle Sanna connect the dots between their experience as composers & improvisers and their love for traditional Irish music.
Dana Lyn, violin, & Kyle Sanna, guitar, present stories of environmental fragility through Irish music and evocative imagery.
Hailed as “ground-breaking” by noted folklorist and NEA Award-recipient Mick Moloney and “bursting with creativity” by renowned fiddler Kevin Burke, Dana Lyn and Kyle Sanna connect the dots between their experience as composers and improvisers in New York City’s rich musical community and their deep admiration for traditional Irish music. The duo has collaborated with some of the greatest living interpreters of Irish music, including Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill, Cillian Vallely, Kevin Burke, and Mick McAuley. Since 2015, Lyn and Sanna have been engaged in the exploration of environmental themes. Their projects “The Great Arc” and “The Coral Suite” celebrate biodiversity through Lyn’s artwork, while also highlighting pressing environmental issues.
Lyn and Sanna have brought their “through the looking glass” approach to traditional music to clubs, festival stages and concert halls throughout the US and Canada. They have taught workshops at the Old Songs Festival, the Catskills Irish Arts Festival, the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival, Wellesley College, West Virginia’s Augusta Heritage Center, Traditional Arts in Upstate New York, and since 2015 have been residents at the Avaloch Farm Music Institute in Boscawen, NH.
