They have just released an outstanding album “The Drunken Gaugers”, composed of 13 carefully chosen Traditional and newly composed tunes. Celtic music is passion driven and good for the heart and soul year round….bring your friends and expose them to the real deal.

Kevin Crawford’s early life (born in Birmingham, UK) was one long journey into Irish music and Co. Clare, to where he eventually moved while in his 20’s.  He was a member of Moving Cloud, the Clare-based band who recorded such critically-acclaimed albums as Moving Cloud and Foxglove, and he also recorded with Grianán, Raise The Rafters, Joe Derrane and Sean Tyrrell and appears on the 1994 recording ‘The Sanctuary Sessions’.  A virtuoso flute player, Kevin has recorded two solo albums, ‘’D’Flute Album’ and ‘In Good Company’ and ‘On Common Ground’ with bandmate Cillian Vallely.  Kevin also tours with Martin Hayes and John Doyle as The Teetotallers.

He teaches and performs at the major Irish music summer camps on both sides of the Atlantic. A member of The Yanks, the hot trad band that has been called” the next Irish American dream team”, Dylan is committed to passing on the tradition, as it was graciously passed to him, by the incomparable Rose Flanagan and others. You can hear his passion for the music in the intense drive of in his lively and fluid playing.

They will also take you behind the scenes and learn what inspires their compositions, the stories behind the songs and the process of song writing through each songwriter’s eyes and experience. It is an interactive event and audience participation is encouraged (but please be respectful and don’t converse with your neighbor while the artists are speaking or singing).
