Irish music's accordion virtuoso Jimmy Keane and vocalist Pat Broaders, better known as bohola are starting a short tour. In their own words they "play a driving, muscular, and yet very emotive style of Irish music with deep roots in the 'pure drop' tradition, infused with the raw and gritty urbanized musical vernacular of the Irish and Irish-American experience."

The Courier News commenting on their music said that "Though most of the tunes bohola play are well over 150 years old, the music comes across more vibrant than the moribund sounds of much of today's alternative rock. Their sound comes from the Irish version of jam sessions, but bohola puts the noodling of many current jam bands (Dave Matthews, among others) to shame."
