Puca Live Music Delectables

Púca is the dynamic duo of Dave Firestine and Claire Jamieson Zucker performing the songs and melodies of Ireland and Appalachia, as well as new innovations hot from the press.  Foot stomping instrumental sets feature the fine musicianship of Dave’s energetic, precise mandolin/bouzouki against the rich heartbeat of Claire’s bodhran or her spunky flatfoot clogging rhythms.  Songs, both noble and lusty, hit the heart or the funny bone and will send you off humming and laughing.   http://pucamusic.com/
