Meet the tribe, Mai and Séamus, Frank Meade, Eddie Brennan &Martin Mehlhorn
Mai Hernon McEvilley and her son Séamus Hernon is from a very musical family who grew up in one of the must cultural villages in the North West of Ireland. Gurteen is a little village in South Sligo and as a musician, Mai and her son Séamus are both recording artists and international perfromer's which gives them the added advantage of knowing people throughout Ireland. They have performed in every corner of Ireland and in doing so, they got to know the local musicians, B&B owners, the best resturaunts, venue's, historical sites. They also got to know the local historians, story tellers, poets, author's, craftspeople and artists.
Mai now lives in Dayton KY but her son Séamus is a well known musician in his native Sligo, where he can be heard every weekend playing in some of the local pubs with his very talented musical friends.
While Mai was living in Ireland she was part of a traditional singing circle in Sligo. There are many of these singing circles all over the country so no matter where Mai brings you, you are sure of a few songs and stories from herself and her friends and of course it goes without saying that herself and her friends would be only too happy if you joined in to sing a song or tell a story too. The musicians are also very welcoming to people who want to join in, and if you want to join in the dancing, that is great too.

Martin Mehlhorn helps me book accommodation all over the country. Martin is from Dublin and has been at the other end of the phone whenever I needed help booking great hotels and B&B's. Keith Stone, originally from England, lives in Donegal. He is very knowledgeable about the highways and byways of Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales!
