Fiddler Sue Draheim is best known for her work with legendary names such as Richard Thompson, John Renbourn and The Albion Band. Bassist Mark Skowronek is a mainstay of the Bay Area music scene who most recently worked with The Folk-Ups, fronted by The Tubes' Bill Spooner. A native of Dublin, Ireland, guitarist Ronan Carroll combines a deep-rooted Celtic folk sensibility with alternative rock experience. Cuban-born drummer Adolfo Lazo, an original Tempest member, colors the band's sound with inventive percussion."
