-Vocals, guitar, bodhran

Paul Tratnyek grew up in the east end of Hamilton, Ontario under the sound of the steel mills. His first group was a three-piece rock band that included his brother and cousin. Practicing in the basement of their house as young teens led them to playing local youth dances. Paul’s shift to folk music and song writing was inspired in the early 70’s after hearing and meeting Stan Rogers after a performance at his high school. Paul’s professional experience as an entertainer began shortly after that as a folk/contemporary musician performing solo at local restaurants, clubs and the university campus in London, Ontario. During that time he recorded on a friend's album and produced an album entitled "Harvest" consisting of his own original songs. Paul was a member of a music selection committee for a national hymnal and had some of his music published. His ability to communicate the excitement, energy and warmth of songs has engaged audiences over the years.


-Vocals, black flute, accordian, celtic harp, fiddle, viola and piano

Teresa Seliske grew up in a very musical family in London, Ontario. Being gifted at an early age, Teresa auditioned and was accepted to attend a prominent local choir school. During her years there she learned a variety of instruments that include violin, clarinet and piano. During this time she also developed her vocal skills. She later taught herself flute, accordion, guitar and celtic harp. Teresa played coffee houses in the mid 70’s with her sister. She also led a number of choirs in London, Kitchener and Stratford, Ontario that included traditional and contemporary music. Teresa recorded “Harvest”, a collection of original songs, with Paul in the early 80’s. Her love of folk and Celtic music expanded her instrumental and vocal ability to capture the depth of the pieces she performs.
Teresa and Paul have been playing music together for over 30 years in a variety of venues. After returning from living in Ghana, West Africa for a year with their daughters Catherine and Anna back in the mid 90’s, Paul and Teresa discovered the energy and excitement of world music. Gathering folks in their farmhouse led to beginnings of the band Kettle’s On. The sounds of great music, the smell of fresh coffee, the sight of a nice spread on the table and the taste of a good pint have all been part of the experience in their kitchen.
