Our unanimously eponymous CD, that is! Come get some!
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 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.
We're also looking forward to hitting the Irish Fair main stage on Friday the 13th of August. (Afraid? Us? Never!!)
