Aoife Clancy was fabulous for my mother's 80th birthday party! She sang beautifully and entertained all of us from ages 6 to 88. I highly recommend her for any gig! She has a wonderful personality and a great sense of humor. We all LOVED Aoife! Cheers!
Through their performance, Aoife and Bill create a warm atmosphere that provides a unique and intimate listening experience."

Bill Elliott began playing guitar at the age of twelve, initially learning folk, then bluegrass, while transitioning into more contemporary music as a teenager. Bill remembers feeling the need to compose his first song at the age of 16 (although his mother has since showed him evidence of his initial attempts at the age of 5) and has been writing, singing and performing ever since.
Today his repertoire and appreciation for music has extended into many musical genre's both old and new and with the addition of Aoife in his life… Celtic!
Just a note about out music..Our music is more suited to private parties, ceremonies, and events that run around 2 to 2 and a half hours. We are not a wedding band and don't play for 4/5 hours. But very suitable for house concerts and smaller events. You won't be dissapointed!
