Contentment Is Wealth
Contentment Is Wealth plays Irish folk music, both instrumental dance music and songs. Whether playing in the back room of a pub, at a farmers' market, or on stage, the group seeks to spread the feeling of conviviality, warmth, and spontaneity that infuses a traditional jam session (or seisiún<span none"="">, in Irish Gaelic). The band's tunes and songs range in origin from across Ireland and the Irish diaspora, and in mood from the merry to the wistful. The band's members are well-versed in the lore of the music and are always eager to educate audiences on the history and community role of Irish music.
The group is composed of Jacob Howley (guitar, tenor banjo, pennywhistle, vocals), Bob Engelman (fiddle, guitar, vocals), Steve Wilson (flute, pennywhistle), and Maureen Locke (guitar, tenor banjo, bodhran, vocals).
