Welcome to our website!  We are a Celtic duo - Dan Ringrose (vocals, guitar) and Jeanne Freeman (fiddle, harmony vocals). We play and sing traditional Irish and Celtic music, with a touch of contemporary folk thrown in for good measure, including original songs and tunes.  Celtic music is fun!  We are passionate about it and love to bring people a good time and get them clapping and singing.  We play in all kinds of venues, large and small, sometimes joined by other musical friends (and even step dancers).  We generally incorporate some stories, humor, and even poetry into our shows, and have been featured on Connecticut Public Television.



Ringrose, Freeman & Friends, featured in "An Evening Of Irish Music" on Connecticut Public Television, 2013 
with Jeanne Freeman (fiddle), Dan Ringrose (vocals and guitar), John Tabb (button accordion), Jon Warner (uilleann pipes and flute), and step dancers from the Griffith Academy
