Oceans Apart, Oceans Together...

John and Steve met on a recording session several years ago and since then, they have crafted a half dozen CDs of their own. They have delighted audiences of every imaginable kind with their songs and instrumentals drawn from the inexhaustible wellsprings of Ireland, Wales, Scotland and North America. The music is infectious, ranging from the breathless jigs, reels and hornpipes, through the more relaxed popular songs, all the way along to the ballads and airs. They have performed on network television and have been favorably received locally and nationally by the media.

Of their recorded music, one fan recently said, "Indirectly, you were responsible for keeping my wife and I up past midnight. We put the CD on my surround sound system and stayed up listening to it until we forced ourselves to go to bed." A recent high point was the standing ovation at their sold out, Estes Park concert: Only the third given in 30 years!

Steve Colby
Guitar, Voice, Mandolin Family, Banjo

Steve is a multi instrumentalist and vocalist whose interest in music began at the ripe old age of five. His musical interests are diverse but, within the past fifteen years have focused on Celtic, folk, folk-rock and old time Rock n Roll. While his first love is the banjo (both tenor and five string), Steve also plays guitar, mandolin and Irish bouzouki. His musical style evolved from the great folk/Celtic music era of the 1950's and 1960's.

Over the years he has performed in over two thousand shows ranging from the large stage to intimate settings. He is a firm believer in the concept that the audience should hear the lyrics and is selective about the songs he performs so they convey meaningful and memorable messages.

John Good
Flutes, Whistles, Welsh Bagpipes, Guitar, Harmonicas, Voice

Born in Wales, surrounded by music and poetry and instructed in Classical Music since childhood, John is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and poet. He received a Masters in music composition at twenty-one and has practiced his trade -- arranger, performer, studio musician, teacher -- in Europe and The United States, ever since.

Of his thirty years in America he says, "In San Francisco it was Jazz, in L.A., New Wave and in Phoenix". well its back home to the songs, folk tunes and harmony of Wales and her Celtic cousins!
