Mike Sweeney and Paddy O’Hare are two musicians who’ve come together to write, record and perform their own interpretation of Roots music. Taking their cues from The Blues, Country, Folk, Rockabilly, Rock n Roll and influences from the likes of Elmore James through to Woodie Guthrie, Mike and Paddy use a mix of acoustic and retro-electric guitars, harmonica, banjo, mandolin and Cajon to produce a unique amalgam of them all. Playing live as a five piece group known as Mike Sweeney & Paddy O’Hare with The Collective, their Walking Down The Line debut EP of original songs was released as a sold out limited run of 200 CDs in 2013.

The MonaLisa Twins are actual 19 year-old twins named Mona and Lisa, writing and singing original songs in the 60s beat music style.
