Jon has played to sold out crowds in Ireland, California and across the Midwest, performing 200 dates a year, touring solo and/or with fellow musicians.
Soulful energetic folk/rock tunes, bluesy guitar riffs and groovin’ versions of Irish pub tunes dominate Katie Sullivan’s performances. Her lively renditions of favorite Irish, blues and American folk-rock music get audiences on stage singing and dancing along.
A guitarist and singer from Belfast, Northern Ireland, Ian Gould's blend of contemporary music and Irish tunes have him singing everything from “Back Home in Derry” to hits made famous by the Beatles and U2.
