Dave Firestine Dave's cheerful genuine nature spreads across any room he enters. He plays with a driving precise rhythm, specializing in those "grab you" tunes that have unique twists and turns.  Dave plays mandolin, bouzouki, and mandola with Púca and his songs run to the hilarious variety - really!  Besides playing with Púca, STEAM! and the Privy Tippers, he is never far from the nearest jam whether it is Irish, old time, contra - whatever.   He also teaches workshops and music all over the country and is pretty famous as the Carp Camp jam- meister at the Walnut Valley Festival in Kansas (just ask anybody). Claire Jamieson Zucker Claire just can't seem to stick to one thing - good thing she has a ton of energy and a happy spirit.  She plays bodhrán (Irish drum) with awesome dynamics and tone to accompany Dave's fast picking, and she also adds rhythm with her clog dancing. An accomplished singer, her songs range from the fun tongue twister types to the Irish ballads and Appalachian story songs. Her newest venture is playing the concertina, which gives their tunes a very cool old- world sound. Besides playing with Púca and contradance band STEAM!, she is fine contradance caller, has a passel of workshops she can teach and she is always happiest when a music jam is near on the horizon.
