She played in the New York Youth Symphony, earned a BA in performance from U Mass, & was accepted into the Masters of Traditional Performance program at the University of Limerick. Eva won a grant from the Connecticut Historical Society, allowing her to live in County Clare for nearly a year studying Irish fiddle. Keegan is a world champion uilleann piper, having won the All-Ireland in 2017. He holds 17 Mid-Atlantic Fleadh titles, including uilleann pipes, whistles, lilting & singing. He has appeared on stage with such Irish music luminaries as The Chieftains, Paddy Keenan, and Altán, and has performed from Toronto to California to the Jersey Shore, as well as in Dublin & County Clare.
