Traditional Irish Music
This is a debut album with music that blends Irish traditional with folk and bluegrass. They originally started as a 5 piece party band playing mostly mainstream covers at the weekends. They lost 2 members due to work commitments and since they have become a 3 piece they have decided to take things more seriously and play more of the material that they were really interested in. With influences that include Punch Brothers, Nickel Creek and We Banjo 3 they have clear potential to emulate those artists as a great live act.
The band members are Jamie McKeogh - Guitar, Tenor Banjo, Mandolin & Lead Vocals, Dáithí Melia - Five String Banjo, Guitar & Vocals and Cathal Guinan - Double Bass, Fiddle & Vocals.
They also follow the recent trend of including more contemporary songs in the overall mix for what is a really broad sound. We have a short interview with them coming up later in the week where they talk about their influences.
