Tom and Mary Kay Aufrance - Slim and Minnie Folk Music - Gairin Celtic

Slim and Minnie bring beautiful harmonies and homespun humor to the stage. This show is an eclectic mix of acoustic music of favorite cowboy and Americana songs, popular and folk music covers and dance tunes and originals. Folks of all musical preferences and all ages find themselves joyfully transported into a timeless musical groove whenever Slim and Minnie perform!

Gairin Celtic Music

Gáirín Celtic Music entertains a wide variety of audiences...

  • Music and Magic for your festival stage
  • Irish Pub Night show for coffee shops, restaurants and pubs.

Whether it's recreating the fun of being in an Irish pub - leading familiar singalongs - or on the festival trail, Tom and Mary Kay enjoy bringing all facets of Celtic music to all audiences. The name Gáirín comes from the Gaelic word for joy, which is Gaira. So, Gáirín would be just a wee bit o' laughter, kinda like a chuckle! Like the name, our show promotes the joy of Celtic music and magic!

A Celtic Connection

Speaking of chuckles. The Nevada Desert Quail is a familiar sight as it clucks and chuckes its way around Nevada. Here's the Celtic connection. That funny little bird was first catalogued and named by a real old time Celtic cowboy whose roots included Scots-Irish and Welsh American. He was the adventurer and naturalist William Gambel, who was came Out West with other early explorers in 1842.


We're the Local Honey Band with Bob Kastelic on fiddle, Tom on banjo and Mary Kay on accordion.
