Worth Dixon Guitar/Banjo/Vocals

Dave ZgleszewskiBodhran/Mandolin

Dave was drawn in acoustic music in high school when his English teacher "Crab Meat" Thompson started a folk guitar club. He quickly picked up the bodhran from Rob and eventually wound up becoming a cast member at the Virginia Rennasaince Faire, playing English and Italian dance tunes.

There, he laid down his guitar, picked up a mandolin and starting playing jigs -- he immediately fell in love with the instrument. Dave spends his spare time working on the Kalmar Nyckel, Delaware's Tall Ship.

Rob Wiltbank Guitar/Vocals

Rob started off as a clasically trained percussionist performing with the Jersey Surf and Westshoremen Drum & Bugle Corps as well as the Brandywine Pops Orchestra and Diamond State Concert Band. In addition, he sang throughout high school and at the University of Delaware in the Men's Ensemble and Choral Union.

He remains active in teaching music scholastically and enjoys the Traditional Irish idiom where he's learned to play bodhran, whistle, octave mandolin and DADGAD tuned guitar.

Zoe the Harpist Harp

Zoe is an enigmatic and somewhat mythical figure bestowed upon the people by powers unknown. It is written that one day she will one day eat an enormous amount of Thai food and split into two Zoe's by way of mitosis.
