Violin & Vocal Duo
This Violin and Vocal Duo are undeniably one of the world's most exhilarating musical talents to have emerged in recent years. Classically trained violinists and vocalists, they are comprised of sisters, Ruth & Joyce O'Leary, who have, without a shadow of a doubt, ice in their veins and fire in their souls. Born in Ireland, the siblings moved to New York with the goal of sending all pre-conceived notions of Irish music spinning into orbit. Their ethereal vocals, glorious custom couture gowns and firebrand dueling strings have taken the US by storm.
The sisters have been flown around the world, performing for many dignitaries, major multinational companies and private clients, most notably, a performance for HRH Prince Albert of Monaco, in Monte Carlo. A recent request from the British Embassy in New York, saw them perform a dazzling *Bond Medley* at the pre-premiere of the new Bond movie "Skyfall" and a groundbreaking performance at the 50th anniversary of the Bond movies on a rooftop overlooking Toronto. The late great Larry Hagman (star of the hit TV series, Dallas) was one of the duo's biggest fans and he regularly flew them to his estate to perform for himself and his family. One of Mr Hagman's final requests was for the sisters to perform at his private memorial in LA.
" The international duo is a talented, well-rehearsed sister act from Ireland known for their beautiful voices as well as the mastery and excitement of their violins. Sisters Joyce and Ruth O'Leary have toured the world with their music. The excitement of their playing together is infectious. "
