Joseph was given his first Native American flute by his father when he was 4 years old. His Celtic influence comes from his gr-grandfather who was a bagpipe player with a family history from Galicia.
Laralyn's vocals and harp playing have a Celtic root that comes from her gr-grandfather who immigrated to the US from Ireland bringing with him his fiddle and songs from the tribes of Eire (Ireland) and Albanach(Scotland).
