Tobias and his brother, Gerard, obtained a wealth of songs and ballads from their mother, a gifted singer,while growing up on Merasheen Island in Placentia Bay. Gabrielle is an accomplished singer and student of the Quebe-cois,Acadian and Breton oral histories who delights in discovering traditional songs and presenting them in their purest form. Seamus was the first and Aiofe a recent All-Ireland Champion in the rare art of lilting.
