Residing in County Clare, button accordeonist/melodeonist Paul Brock and fiddler Manus McGuire have been at the forefront of Irish music for many years through their joint work with "Moving Cloud" (which they formed in 1989).
Manus is also a founding member of "Buttons & Bows", and both bands, ranking among Ireland's finest, have helped to introduce international audiences to Irish traditional music.
Paul and Manus are joined in the band by the brilliant Galway musician Enda Scahill, and by accompanist Denis Carey.
Check out their website for detailed bios of the four musicians.
One of the most notable Irish musicians living in the Southwest, Jeff Moore has been playing the guitar since the age of seven and has been studying and performing traditional Irish music for the past decade.
hello, my name is sal. im in a band from brooklyn called the governors and we will be going on tour down south in february. we're looking to hit austin on february 6th or 7th and were hoping some of you can lend us some southern hospitality..
suggestions as to where to play? local bands that want to join us on a bill?
we've got some music up at myspace.com/votethegovernors which is somewhat outdated as we prepare to record our new album, but a general idea as to what we're doing.. kind of a rockin' folk, drunken sing-a-long, country, blues thang with lots of vocal harmonies, stompin and clapping. thanks for your help!
