“Fiddler extraordinaire Jeanne Freeman … a casual virtuosity…the music is light, airy, and fun, and…really, really good….guitarist Danny Ringrose showcases a stunning voice in a duet that demonstrates why he and Freeman often perform as a duo….”
— The Fretboard Journal
This unique duo combines Wethersfield fiddler Jeanne Freeman, whose playing has been described as “effortlessly virtuosic” — and singer/guitarist Dan Ringrose, whose voice has been called “stunning.” Together, they bring a lively fresh take on traditional tunes and songs, and performances interwoven with stories, poetry, and humor. They have been featured on Connecticut Public Television, many other television and radio programs, and have performed at numerous festivals and venues.
Dan Ringrose was reared on Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem music, and began singing their songs by the age of three. With his rich and powerful baritone voice, a mischievous sense of humor, and a comfortable command of the stage, Dan has entertained crowds in festivals, fairs, and concert halls for 30 years. Along with numerous radio and television appearances, he has performed with some of the most notable names in Celtic music, including Tommy Makem, fiddler P.V. O’Donnell, The Clancy Brothers, John Whelan, and others. He has taught at the Connecticut Academy of Irish Music, and has a number of solo recordings.
Jeanne Freeman is the founder and Director of the Connecticut Academy of Irish Music, where she teaches Irish fiddle to students of all ages. Classically trained in her early years, Jeanne studied Irish fiddling with friend and mentor, the late Donegal fiddler P.V. O’Donnell. Jeanne has performed as the featured Irish fiddle soloist with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, and has been the Guest Artist for Simsbury Public School’s town-wide String Festival. She teaches and performs regularly, and frequently hosts traditional Irish music sessions throughout the area. Jeanne appears on a number of recordings, including her solo CD, “The Fiddler You Are.”
