Rackhouse Pilfer got the President's approval when they performed at Aras an Uachtarain as part of the summer garden party.
The bluegrass boys were entertaining last week at the event, hosted annually by the President.
The couple were happy to pose for a picture with the young musicians after the gig.
Ray D'Arcy of Today FM was MC for the event, while the Templemore Pipe Band, Little John Nee, We Banjo 3 and Margo also entertained.
President Higgins and his wife Sabina welcomed community groups, families and individuals.
A crowd of 350 gathered on the Aras garden in the warm sunshine.
The President said that the event was held to pay tribute to communities, 'wherever they are working in whatever way'.
The Aras garden party tradition began during Douglas Hyde's presidency.
