Calling themselves Three Times Through, the group plays tradition-based music of Ireland, Scotland and America. Instruments include hammered dulcimer, harp, fiddle, mandolin, concertina, bouzouki, banjo, bodhràn, and guitar. The emphasis is on eclectic Celtic music; spirited instrumentals, engaging vocals and haunting melodies.
These four musicians started performing together during the Carter administration. Half of the quartet, Jeff and Gale Peach, moved to Nevada City in 1985. The other half, Greg and Margie Mirken, remained in Southern California, owned and ran a guitar store and continued performing. The Mirkens moved to Nevada City in 2008, and the four are having the time of their lives playing music together again.
