Galla plays guitar, flute, balalaika and ukulele and Dan is an accomplished pianist and plays keyboards, accordion and trumpet.  Theirs is a unique sound with strong harmony and they are asked back year after year to annual events and fairs.  Touring mostly in Pennsylvania and occasionally in the Midwest, this husband and wife have also performed in Nashville, New Orleans and this summer Kentucky
