Jim and Adam first met at an Irish session at the Harp in North Amherst, MA the winter of 2005. Adam was impressed by Jim's non-traditional approach to the guitar. Clearly he was playing it in a non-standard tuning, his fingers coaxing runs and arpeggios mixed with chords. Jim was invited to join Woodkerne, a quartet of string players at that time. A year later, the concept of a light but disciplined Celtic duo was discussed and Celticado was born.
