Anthony Santoro & Scott Lemire

Anthony Santoro and Scott Lemire were born from the Irish folk music oral tradition, with emphasis on traditional dance music. Both keep with the old-fashioned way of life, working trade labor jobs by day and playing music socially in the evenings and on weekends. Lemire’s hardworking approach to life resonates in his tenor banjo and fiddle music; his playing has been heavily influenced by the late Roger Burridge. Santoro began playing the tin whistle and uilleann pipes from an early age and it has been a constant thread in his life ever since; some of his piping influences are Paddy Moloney, the late Liam O’Flynn, Paddy Keenan, Jerry O’Sullivan, Benedict Koehler, and Finbar Furey. Anthony and Scott are currently based in New Hampshire and they play in the greater New England area throughout the seasons. The pair can commonly be found hosting sessions and playing in local Irish music friendly establishments.
