The Rising. An idea in motion. A Revolution of the Conventional. An Uprising of the Spirit.

Since November of 2015, four lads have created a unique, individualistic style of playing which echoes of Ceoltoiri Chualann, to the magical sounds of ‘De Danann’ or the innovative ‘Breaking Trad’ and “We Banjo 3”. The band is a living, breathing entity, made up of Cian O’ Sullivan (Fiddle) Steven O’ Leary (accordion/melodeon), Sean Kelliher (Guitar) and Thomas Barrett (Cajon/Vocals)

The Constituents met through local politics and activism. They first performed together around 2003 during Ingrid’s first successful election campaign for Arlington County’s Commissioner of Revenue. All members live in Arlington, Virginia, hence the band’s name.

Jamie Daly (mandolin, vocals) has been a part of the Washington DC-area acoustic music scene since 1985. He has sung and played guitar, bass, and mandolin in countless local personnel combinations involved in bluegrass, folk, blues, acoustic rock, and all of their permutations. Band member, sideman, vocal-harmony specialist, practicing Deadhead, and Ingrid’s neighbor.

Liza Figueroa Kravinsky (bass) plays piano, violin, guitar, and bass.  She toured as a keyboard player with Motown recording artist Stacy Lattisaw.  She also composed for, directed, and performed with Robin Power and the Uptown Dames, a Paisley Park project created by Prince.  In 2012, she composed the Go-Go Symphony, which combines Washington DC’s gogo dance beats with classical, jazz, and funk genres. She founded the Go-Go Symphony ensemble to perform it, along with similar compositions by others, in partnership with full symphony orchestras, or as a stand-alone ensemble.

Ingrid Morroy (guitar, vocals) & Judith Morroy (vocals, percussion) are long time twins, who began performing as a duo at the tender age of 11. In spite of their professional careers (Ingrid as Arlington County’s Commissioner of Revenue, and Judith as an international development consultant), they continue to delight audiences around the area with their sibling harmonies in a variety of music genres from the Americas, in particular folk, bluegrass, and calypso.
