Jeremiah McDade


Jeremiah McDade

Juno award winning siblings Shannon Johnson and Jeremiah McDade have been playing music together their whole lives. Rooted in the Celtic tradition, their fiery performances capture all the energy of a down home kitchen party instrumental virtuoso. Jeremiah is equally at home on saxophones, fiddle, Irish whistle,s, and guitar. He seamlessly moves from one instrument to the next, introducing the audience to the rich aural textures and colours that mark his performances, while his dynamic and heartfelt vocals deliver a rich tapestry of stories.

–“The Dizzy Gillespie of the Irish Tin Whistle” (Gail Wein, Washington Post)
