Jeremiah McDade

Jeremiah McDade, Shannon & Solon’s younger brother, is a multi-instrumental virtuoso, equally at home on whistles, saxophones, fiddle and flute. Jeremiah first performed professionally with his family at age five and has never looked back. He seamlessly moves from one instrument to the next introducing the audience to the rich aural textures and colors that mark his performances, while his dynamic and heartfelt vocals deliver a rich tapestry of stories.

Jeremiah graduated with high distinction from the Jazz Performance program at McGill University and has been called “The Dizzy Gillespie of the Irish Tin Whistle”. (Gail Wein, Washington Post) His compositional style combines traditional world music with jazz while focusing on the energy and spontaneity of improvisation.

A natural leader, Jeremiah captivates audiences with his charm, his wit, and his masterful musicianship.
