Emmet, from Ireland, strums his acoustic guitar.
Wife Naomi, from Vermont, plays her fiddle.
Their three year old son, Ronin, often joins them while they busk (perform for money)
Together they are known as the very talented folk Irish duo, “The Poor Cousins”.
Busking means they are only paid what they earn from tips and CD sales.
Rambunctious Ronin, always lending a hand, even when hands aren’t needed.
Up before the sun, the trio commute from deep within Brooklyn to Grand Central to busk for a couple hours.
When Ro gets tired the show must still go on, so Naomi places him on her back.
Somewhere in Far Rockaway, New York
The duo prepares for a fundraiser.
The house is packed to support Music That Heals, an organization The Poor Cousins are associated with that brings musicians into hospitals to play music for the terminally ill.
At the furthest subway stop from Grand Central Terminal.
The Poor Cousins round out the holiday season with a performance at an Irish themed holiday dinner in Far Rockaway, New York.
