Once upon a time, Jim Lawrence started a singing Celtic Duo with his daughter, Holly.
They cleverly named the duo "Jim & Holly Lawrence" and released three CDs, Of Gaels and Saints, Celtic Harmonies and Caledonian Shadows, all three of which are available through CD Baby.
They played at festivals, pubs, private functions, charity events and generally any other place that would hire them.
Many years later, Lauren brought her fiddle and joined the group to make a trio.
In the meantime, Holly got married and had three kids. Then one day, she moved with her husband from Fredericksburg, Va. to Roanoke, Va.
Jim and Lauren elected to persevere under the moniker "Celtic Machinations."
They continue to do so.
On this track, Lauren lends some energetic fiddle and Jim some steady bouzouki on a traditional reel entitled "Whisky Before Breakfast."
