Genre bending trad music.

An eclectic and jazz infused Celtic band with members from varied facets of the rich Twin Cities music scene.  Members include Brian Handeland (various woodwinds); Datta Hartman (accordion); Bill Lee (harmonica, whistles, bagpipes), Ric Lee (fiddle and mandolin); Shawn McBurnie (vocals and bodhrán); Matt Pearson (upright bass); Patrick Riley (concertina), Sherry Taplin (clogging and autoharp), Michael Ries (guitar and vocals) and John Gwinn / Sunil Bawa (percussion).

Irish Diplomacy shines when playing original material you'd swear came from the tradition, or adding a surprising twist to an old chestnut.


Events: Irish Diplomacy

We have a standing engagement at Finnegan's (817 S 5th Ave, ) every Thursday, 6-8 PM. (Out back if the weather is kind; indoors if not.) Come see us!

If that's not enough - and why would it be? - you can also see us every second and fourth Sunday afternoon, 3-5, at Mojo Coffee Gallery (2205 California St NE, 55418) - use the east side parking lot.

Irish Diplomacy...

Get ready for some sweet talkin', foot stompin', finger flyin' fun!
