Meet the Performers:
Oona grew up in the rich musical community of Ithaca, NY, and has been been listening to and playing music as long as she can remember. As a violin player, Oona specializes in traditional fiddle including Irish, old-time and cajun styles. In Saratoga, Oona teaches and performs with a number of groups and is one of the instructors for the Caffe Lena School of Music.
Growing up outside Louisville, KY, James was surrounded by music from an early age; radio, vinyl records, church music, and live concerts were a part of daily life. Finding his own musical style as an adult, James always keeps his ears open for sounds – new, old, familiar, or strange. While singing and playing guitar and banjo with Drank The Gold, he delves into the traditions of American old time and Irish dance tunes, while keeping true to his borderless, experimental musical roots. James is one of the instructors for the Caffe Lena School of Music.
