The most senior member (& founder of the original group) is Brendan Leeson. Brendan has years of experience in the ballad business playing in numerous traditional Irish bands including “The Dublin City Ramblers”. Brendan has an extraordinary repertoire of ballads at his disposal & leads the band, as they take in the familiar, fun & crowd-pleasing tunes, jigs & reels alongside the more mysterious, contemplative, storytelling ballads.

Paul Holohan is the bass player & singer with “Whiskey Still”. Paul also plays keyboard & is an excellent songwriter.
