Daoine will perform Irish music in honor of St. Patrick's Day.
Daoine (pronounce "DEE-nee") is the Irish word for "people". The band Daoine is a group of musicians and their friends who love to get together and play great Irish music and share it with listeners -- from dance music like jigs, reels and hornpipes, to hauntingly beautiful airs and songs. Irish traditional music that, while played for centuries in Ireland and America, continues to inspire and continues to find a new voice with each generation. Their music has a fire and energy to it, while striving to stay true to its roots. The Irish band's instruments include fiddle, uilleann (Irish) pipes, bodhran, whistle, flute, guitar and banjo. Daoine's principle members are Joe Dunne of Manasquan (Irish bodhran), Max Carmichaelor, Red Bank (guitar), Brian Szura, Highland Park (Irish pipes), and Phil Weir, Keyport (fiddler). The group has played at the Raritan River Festival, the Reformed Church of Highland Park, Arts in the Park and at St. Bartholomew's Church.
