About the Old Songs
With delicate vocals and deft instrumentation, Ask Your Father is the husband/wife team of Rich and Dee Kelly. Ask Your Father performs original arrangements of traditional folk songs with vocals, 6 and 12-string guitars, Irish bouzouki, mandolin, tenor banjo, tin whistles, bodhran and other percussion. Dee Kelly comes from America's Midwest, where she was steeped in a variety of musical styles. Rich Kelly comes from the Boston area, where he was raised listening to the folk songs of Ireland. Rich and Dee perform regularly throughout New England and have toured southern Ohio twice. 'About the Old Songs' is their debut album and features their first original composition, 'St. Patrick's Day', which they hope will become a March 17 sing-along favorite.
