Bringing fresh energy to traditional Celtic music, Jordan Tirrell-Wysocki has been performing solo and collaborating with numerous bands around the Northeastern USA and Ireland for nearly two decades. Though he often takes the fiddle into genres where it's rarely seen, Jordan is recognized by the New Hampshire Traditional Arts Council as a Master Artist, and traditional Celtic music will always have special place in his heart and in his performances. His latest album, Into the Cold, is comprised of original songs deeply rooted in the Celtic tradition but made unique by influences from other genres and supported on many tracks by a full rock band.
Jordan was one of the founding members of JamAntics ("Best Jam Band" NH Magazine, 2010, "Best Original Band" The Hippo, 2011) and currently plays most frequently with the Dusty Gray Band (DustyGray.com) in addition to his own trio. With various groups, he has opened for Irish music legends Tommy Makem and Derek Warfield and the Young Wolfetones, country superstars such as Willie Nelson, Charlie Daniels and Uncle Kracker, and classic rockers Blues Traveler, The Marshall Tucker Band and Little Feat. He has toured nationally with the Adam Ezra Group (winner of five New England Music Awards including "Band of The Year") and appeared as a guest musician with other nationally touring bands including Yarn, The Lost Trailers, Roots of Creation and Hot Day At The Zoo. He is a member of the house band at Rocking Horse Studio ("Best Recording Studio", NH Magazine, 2012) and can be heard on dozens of recordings including projects with Garth Hudson of The Band. Highlight gigs have included several NH governor's inaugural receptions, Irish pubs from Clare to Donegal, and the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, D.C., as well as hundreds of appearances at barn dances, rock concerts, farmer’s markets, folk festivals, weddings, private parties, and anywhere else people want to kick back and have a good time.
