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.
