Becky Tracy, Jeremiah McLane and Keith Murphy:  the band that was "Nightingale"

For 18 years, Nightingale performed a mix of traditional and tradition-inspired original music for concerts and dances throughout the US and abroad. With Becky Tracy (fiddle), Jeremiah McLane (accordion and piano) and Keith Murphy (guitar, mandolin, foot percussion and vocals), the band created a distinctive sound using French Canadian, Irish and many other sources as the basis of sophisticated and emotionally compelling arrangements.

The band recorded four CDs - The Coming Dawn (1994), Sometimes When the Moon is High (1996), Three/ Trois (2004) and Jolie (2009) which contributed to Nightingale's loyal and passionate following.

The band retired in 2011. Nightingale CDs remain available on this web site.

All three musicians continue with various other musical projects. Please go to the contact page for inquiries.
