Jenna Moynihan and Lukas Pool come from completely different musical backgrounds, but when they come together musical magic occurs. Jenna, a native of Lakewood, New York, grew up playing Scottish- and Cape Breton-style fiddle and has made a name for herself as a solo artist, a member of a folk music quartet, and a much-sought-after instructor. Pool grew up in Mountain View, Arkansas playing old-time banjo, folk, and bluegrass while jamming on the town square. He also is in demand as a solo performer, plays regularly in a folk group, and teaches his craft to individuals and at national workshops. Pool is the 2011 National Old-Time Banjo Champion.

Both Moynihan and Pool attend Berklee College of Music, where they came together as a duet. Their musical styles just clicked from the start. It's been said that when they play as a duet the sounds synchronize so tightly that it becomes as one instrument, an unforgettable music experience.
