The Here and Now, based out of Austin, Tx, is an exciting band made up of Chris Buckley (fiddle), Niamh Fahy (fiddle), Rob Forkner (Bodhrán) and Joseph Carmichael (guitar). All accomplished musicians in their own right, together they create a rich and captivating sound full of energy that presents Irish traditional music in a contemporary context. Drawing from each of their backgrounds in Irish music, with a geography that spans the United States and Ireland, The Here & Now keep tradition at the heart of their music

Chris Buckley has spent the last decade plus as a member of the renowned Irish music trio, the Tea Merchants. After growing up in Wisconsin, he came to Austin to pursue his Master's of Musical Arts degree at the University of Texas and has been here since developing a reputation as one of Texas’s most sought after fiddle players.

Niamh who is originally from Co. Meath in Ireland, moved to Austin in 2014 having spent the previous 10 years playing music full-time, 5 of which she spent as soloist with Riverdance. She has also worked with The Young Irelanders, The Dhol Foundation, Donal Lunny & The Chieftains.

Rob Forkner is a master Bodhrán player and is also one of the world's most highly sought after Irish drum makers. He, along with Chris, is a founding member of the Tea Merchants, and after a time in Europe has returned to Austin, to combine forces musically once again. Joseph Carmichael, guitarist and whistle/flute player from Dallas is a founding member of the irish music trio, Flashpoint. He tours regularly with the Mari Black band and Ashley Davis. He pulls from a variety of influences to create a style that brings the band's music together.
