We can play for several hours specializing in a Folk pop sound with some Irish and original tunes. We are up to date on one level like Gotye/Foster the People/Frankies Gun crossed with 60′s soul-folk.

Think contemporary folk in vein of Falling Slowly cross-eyed with the Mamas and Papas – a sort of spruced up smart alecky acoustic 1960′s thing I suppose might get close to it. We play the sung and updated version of Irish music not so much the fiddle heavy jigs n reels.
