We're headed for the Hall of Fame (see story)

Here's a photo of us following the announcement that we are going to be inducted into the Mid-Atlantic Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann Hall of Fame in April!

“One of the finest and truest purveyors of Irish traditional music in the Delaware Valley” —

Traditional Irish music is alive and well and flourishing in South Jersey. We've been performing in the greater tri-state area for more than 35 years. Sure. It's only the two of us but you'll hear us play Celtic harp, fiddle, flute, guitar, banjo, tinwhistle, bouzouki and occasionally the bodhran. And the singing! So "Come Take the Byroads" and check out our web site and find out more about McDermott's Handy.

Kathy & Dennis performing at the Cape May Music Festival at the Cape May Convention Center last year.

“This was the most successful program of our year.”
"The audience was most enthusiastic and sang along very happily. The variety of instruments as well as the skill and talent diplayed by Kathy and Dennis were most remarkable. The evaluations were nearly unanimous in wanting us to invite McDermott's Handy back to perform again." —Friends of the Edison Public Library
