Two musical siblings join a champion bodhrán player/Irish step dancer with lead guitar/vocalist giving this ensemble it’s own unique brand. Their vast repertoire celebrates the best essence of traditional Irish music, song and dance. Sibling duet on fiddle and button accordion, Maureen and Brendan Browne are the lead instrumentalists and fluent Irish speakers while Galway’s own ‘Lord of the Dance’ Peter Vickers brings his unique percussive expression and stylistic dancing to the stage. The Fourth and newest member to the band is renowned guitarist/vocalist from Co. Galway Fabian Joyce.
Described by fRoots magazine as “The icing on the cake” with “razor-sharp precision” and “a state-of-the-art-performance” this powerful melodic ensemble of fiddle and box is driven by the percussive nature of the accompaniment, which in turn delivers Irish traditional music, song and dance to audiences in a highly unique fashion. Their performances are vibrant, energetic and yet foster the organic nature of their home traditions and heritages. It is without question that they leave their audiences with the warmth of wanting more.
