Sedona AZ (June 12, 2018) – One For The Foxes, an exciting and dynamic transatlantic trio, brings a rousing blend of Irish and American folk music to Sedona having already won over audiences on both sides of the ocean. From energetic fiddle tunes and beautiful ballads and songs, the traditional as well as originals, this concert on Tuesday June 19th at 7pm at the Hub is one you’ll want to catch.
The group is made up of Dublin’s Tadhg Ó Meachair (Goitse), Galway’s Dave Curley (SLIDE) and Denver, Colorado’s Joanna Hyde (The Hydes), and features a mix of Irish and American folk music and song. Their performances draw on the stories found in ballads across both sides of the Atlantic and the respective instrumental music traditions of these places.
Award-winning instrumentalists each in their own right, Dave, Tadhg & Joanna take a unique twist on the diverse strengths of their individual backgrounds, weaving between traditional melodies, their own compositions, and songs from the broader folk canon. They recently joined forces and talents to create the special blend that is ‘One For The Foxes’. The results are highly personalized and thrilling in their daring and forthright grasp of their material.
Through a shared deep-rooted passion for Irish traditional music, this trio highlights the vital role of Irish traditional music as an origin of much American folk music, and explores how those styles can interact with one another in a manner both eclectic and grounded. Having collaborated on the recently-released ‘One for the Foxes’ CD, they are now touring the US.
This concert is brought to Sedona by Living Traditions Presentations, dedicated to bringing world class Celtic Music to Northern Arizona. Established by Ron Barton and his daughter about 8 years ago, it was born out of a passion for (and playing) Irish and Scottish music.

More recently, Dave has been performing with ‘Instrumental band of the Decade’ The Brock McGuire Band and also recorded with producer Donal Lunny and Grammy award Winners Ron Block, Jeff Taylor and Buddy Greene.
