"Golden Lane" is a group of musicians from the SE New England area who specialize in
performing the lively dance music of Ireland (jigs, reels, etc.)
in a traditional style. They also perform songs (in English and Gaelic).
The group's performances are always "family-friendly" and interaction with the
audience (e.g. questions about the music or the instruments, kids dancing, clapping/foot-tapping)
Recent performances include library gigs in Mattapoisett, Wareham, Harwich,
and West Falmouth; First Night Sandwich; and for the past two summers Cape Cod Canal cruises
aboard the mv VIKING. Members of the group also host other musicians
at the regular Thursday evening session held at "O'Shea's Olde Inne" in West Dennis.

Out of respect for the music and for their audience demographic,
the group avoids the indoor use of amplification wherever possible.
They do however have a sound system available for outdoor performances.
