Cedar and Jake met in 2022 at a local session, and discovered their shared affinity for Irish dance tunes. Cedar grew up listening to Irish music on the radio, and fell in love after hearing bands Dervish and Altan play live, later studying with Martin Hayes at fiddle camp. Jake became enamored with the music in his late teens, learning to play tunes on the flute, and drew much inspiration from summers at the Catskills Irish Arts Week in NY, gleaning from the likes of flute legends Jimmy Noonan, Mike Rafferty and Catherine Mcevoy among others. The two seasoned musicians and performers blend their unique voices on flute and fiddle to create a soulful, crisp sound.
Cedar Stanistreet grew up playing both classical violin and traditional fiddle music, and studied violin performance at the Crane School of Music. For the past ten years he has played for contra dances across North America with bands including Nor’easter, Cardinal Direction, Maivish, and Cloud Ten. His spirited, rhythmic playing and clear tone keep dancers on their feet. In between gigs, Cedar can be found at home in Brattleboro, VT, growing vegetables, baking bread, and birdwatching. He also repairs violins, violas, and cellos.
Jake Grieco’s traditional music journey began some 20 years ago in Vermont, where he made a name for himself as a pretty good flute player. He then spent 12 years on the west coast playing Irish music for Ceilis weddings and sessions, and as part of the folk trio Outbound Traveler. He brings a soulful, contemplative, yet driving style to dance music and is psyched to be back home in New England playing some of the best music of his journey thus far.
