Sister-brother duo Joanna and Iain Hyde weave creatively and decisively through an eclectic musical landscape of Americana, Irish, bluegrass, and beyond. They merge these folk styles to create textured instrumentals and rich vocal harmonies, as displayed on their debut album, Green and Blue, in a way that speaks unmistakably of roots in Colorado and Ireland, as well as visits to places in between. Special guests Tadhg Ó Meachair (piano, piano accordion) and Dave Curley (vocals, guitar, banjo, mandolin) Tadhg, from Dublin, tours with the award-winning Irish band Goitse, and is an All-Ireland piano champion who has toured across Europe, North America, Africa and Asia. He features prominently throughout Green and Blue and has collaborated with The Hydes over the last several years. Dave Curley, is one of Ireland's leading multi-instrumentalists, vocalists and a champion step dancer. Hailing from Co. Galway on the west coast of Ireland, Curley has performed throughout Europe and the US, recorded with Grammy award winners Ron Block, Jeff Taylor and Buddy Greene, and toured with Grammy award winners Moya Brennan of Clannad and Ross Holmes of Mumford and Sons. He also worked for many years with award-winning Irish and American roots groups SLIDE and RUNA.
