Sorcha is a new and exciting take on the Irish genre. The goal of Sorcha is to introduce audiences to original material that has a focus of creating an exciting live sound. They believe they achieve this by pushing the boundaries of what a reel, jig, or a hornpipe can be. By combining fresh arrangements and technical mastery of our instruments, we put on a unique and thrilling show.

Sorcha is composed of fiddler Nikki Philbrick, guitarist Joseph Carmichael, and Dan Vaughn on tin whistle and flute. They are masters of their craft and have been performing within the genre for over a decade in various groups. 

Current Roster

Joseph Carmichael - Guitar

Nikki Philbrick - Fiddle
