Jenny Anne Mannan
Jenny Anne Mannan
Northwest native Jenny Anne Mannan began her musical education at a tender age, touring with her family’s bluegrass band, The Bullas, and garnering awards at fiddle contests along the way. In 1998 she moved to Nashville with her brother Luke Bulla, where the pair co-founded a band and became fixtures in the Nashville bluegrass scene. Jenny Anne toured with country songwriter Paul Overstreet, and was often a guest of artists such as Ricky Skaggs, Chris Jones, and Jim Lauderdale. Since her return to Spokane, WA, where she currently lives with her husband, author Caleb Mannan and their 4 children, she has released a solo record, Saints and Sinners, in addition to lending fiddle and vocals to Irish band An Dochas. She has been a recurring guest of Sean and Sara Watkins on their critically acclaimed show Watkins Family Hour and has played with John Cowan at the legendary Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Her songs have been recorded by John Cowan ("Little Match Girl", Comfort & Joy) and Sara Watkins ("Lock & Key", Sun Midnight Sun). Jenny Anne’s music pays homage to her bluegrass roots as she chronicles the westward journey of a generation, a family, and a sound, in a style all her own. She is an American Songstress.
An Dochas

An Dochas, (Irish for “The Hope),” is an Irish band with cross-cultural influences, presenting traditional Irish music fused with the energy of Rock and the versatility of folk. A driving rhythm section of guitar, bass, and drums supports traditional instruments including the Uilleann pipes, whistles, Bodhran, banjo and fiddle. The band incorporates moving ballads as well as rowdy, comical vocals into their sets creating an emotionally dynamic performance to accompany explosive Irish step dancing.
The Haran Irish Dancers have been performing for over a decade in America, Austria, and Japan, and have had multiple appearances at the Irish Step Dancing World Championships.
