They will be playing acoustic versions of songs from Dicey Riley’s repertoire and many other songs that they bring out for these acoustic shows. Little Dicey will play some traditional music, originals, originals derived from traditional works, and acoustic covers of Celtic rock music. The band is: Timmy O'Brien playing acoustic guitar, Zoe Darrow singing and playing fiddle, and John McLaughlin singing and playing the cajón (the box drum), the bodhrán (the Irish drum) and the djembe (an African drum). Zoe is, as many in western New England already know, is a phenomenal Celtic fiddle player but what will be become evident on seeing a Little Dicey show is that Zoe is also an extremely talented vocalist.
