Celtic Duo Seán Heely and Kevin Elam have been praised for their beautiful traditional arrangements and expressive playing as well as having an authentic sound in many different styles. Fiddle legend Liz Carroll calls Seán “One powerhouse of a fiddler.” He is a U.S National Scottish Fiddle Champion as well as an award-winning Irish Fiddler and singer in the folk traditions of Scotland and Ireland.
Kevin Elam is the 2019 All-Ireland Men’s Singing Champion and an acclaimed multi-instrumentalist in the Washington D.C area.
Kevin performs on guitar, tenor banjo, whistle, and sings in the Seán Heely Celtic Trio and with Seán in their Celtic Duo. Kevin is also a classically trained pianist and holds a degree in Jazz from George Mason University, and performs regularly as a solo pianist and as a keyboardist. Seán and Kevin have performed together at venues such as the Kennedy Center, Strathmore music center, All-Ireland fleadh, Acadia Trad Festival, CCE Irish Folk Festival in Fairfax, VA, and the Virginia Scottish Games.
Two sisters is composed of two actual sisters, Guen and Liz Spilsbury, who have been singing together since the age they could carry a tune. Born to musical parents, they were introduced to both classical and folk music at a young age and fell in love with both. Named for the traditional Two Sisters song, they specialize in long and grisly murder ballads, but sing everything from classical art songs and madrigals to work songs and bawdy ballads, blending their voices in unique harmony. They have sung in many ensembles in the area, including the Washington Revels, Riverbend opera, Six Degree singers, and Victorian lyric Opera Company. No siblings were harmed in the making of this duo.
