About Across the Pond:
With over 700 performances in the US and Canada Across the Pond has entertained audiences of all ages at concert halls, festival stages, weddings, municipal summer concerts, parties and pubs from North Carolina to Montreal, QC.
They play and sing both traditional and contemporary Celtic folk music from Ireland and Scotland, with occasional Appalachian Mountain Music. From the Burren, to the Highlands, to Appalachia, they find the best songs and tunes, then have their way with them.
Band members are Mike Morrison on Guitar & mandolin, Dan Diviney on bodhran and whistles; Molly Shortridge on flutes, whistles and piccolo, Charles Kadyk on fiddle and viola, and Casey Smial step dancing.
Across the Pond was been named in the Top 20 Celtic Folk Bands World-wide by Marc Gunn’s Irish & Celtic Music Podcast; was named Co-winners of the Texas Scots Talent Competition; ‘I Know My Love’ from “Kid on the Mountain” CD was voted ‘Best of Contemporary’ and inducted into the Celtic Radio Hall of Fame, their Arran Boat set was nominated as Best Traditional; and, “Kid on the Mountain” CD was entered into the Irish Traditional Music Archives in Dublin, Ireland. Their second CD, Little Beggarman, was released just prior to the pandemic and has been very well received.
