Across the Pond plays traditional and contemporary Celtic folk music.  A musical blend of fiddle, viola, flute, alto flute, piccolo, guitar, banjo, mandolin, whistles, and the beat of a bodhrán make for the perfect entertainment. By adding a dash of modern influences without straying too far from traditional roots Across the Pond sets itself apart from other trad bands.  

 

Awards and recognitions, combined with repeat booking, and a loyal fan base attest to the musicianship and entertainment value of the performances.

Thank you for taking a few moments to look through this promotion package and visiting the band`s website page. We look forward to working with you soon!

About the Band

Across the Pond is a multi-instrumental four-piece band performing their own high-energy arrangements of Irish, Scottish and Appalachian tunes and songs.   While very passionate about their traditional roots, their arrangements contain modern influences. This high-energy band, featuring Mike Morrison, Dan Diviney, Molly Shortridge and Charles Kadyk, has been sharing their take of traditional and contemporary Irish folk music throughout the Mid-Atlantic region for years. They've developed their own unique style many years ago and have never looked back. Playing at dozens of regional performances annually, from North Carolina, USA to Quebec & Ontario Provinces in Canada, at festivals, weddings, concerts, corporate events, and of course Irish pubs.

 

Shortly after the release of their first CD, ‘Kid on the Mountain’ in October 2014, they were named in the Top 20 Celtic folk bands world-wide by Marc Gunn.  “I Know My Love” featuring guest vocalist Marylin Dolly was named Best Contemporary Irish Song by Celtic Music Radio in 2016. Also, in 2016 Across the Pond`s Arran Boat Set was also nominated for Best Traditional Irish song by Celtic Music Radio as well. Their first CD "Kid on the Mountain" has also been entered into the Irish Traditional Music Archives in Dublin, Ireland. Little Beggarman, released October 2019, quickly become a fan favorite.

 

Across the Pond has created a truly interactive experience.  And they often add an award-winning Irish Dancer to their roster, creating a full Irish experience that can be found without having to buy a plane ticket to Ireland. This band is sure to have you clapping and singing along to songs like "Whiskey in the Jar," all while trying not to spill your drink. Across the Pond grab the audience’s attention from the very first beat and hold it right to the end.
