Nimbly handling fiddle duties is Doug Lamey. Doug, grandson of Boston fiddling legend Bill Lamey, is one of the area's most sought after Celtic fiddlers.

“"From a musician's perspective, I really appreciate the effort Jeff puts into his shows. Nobody on the Boston folk scene works harder to pull a concert together."
