Christy Leahy (C#/D button accordion) grew up in Carraig na bhFear (County Cork) in a musical household. He was taught by Bobby Gardiner and Noreen Kelleher before crafting his own distinctive style of accordion playing, through years of playing for dances and in sessions. He also performs with the group North Cregg with whom he has recorded four albums and toured internationally.

Caoimhín Vallely (piano), from another musical family in Armagh city, now resides in Cork. As a piano and fiddle player he has recorded and toured with Buille, Karan Casey, North Cregg and many others. His critically acclaimed solo album Strayaway showcases his unique approach to piano playing, marking him a truly individual voice in Irish music today.
