With four members coming from Ireland and one from Brittany it is inevitable their mix of music is not just Irish but also Breton, Middle Eastern, Galician and newly composed. Guidewires have an all-star line up with Irish music's most famous concertina player Pádraig Rynne, Breton music's hottest name Sylvain Barou on Flute, one of Ireland's most recognizable names Tóla Custy on fiddle, top producer and performer Paul McSherry on guitar and one of the fastest growing stars in Irish music, Karol Lynch on Bouzouki.
