This fine band brings the passion and precision of Irish music to Lotus. Founding members Paul Brock (button accordion and melodeon) and Manus McGuire (fiddle) now live in County Clare, and both are award-winning masters of Irish traditional music. The band also includes Galway-based Dave Curley on banjo, mandolin, and vocals, and Limerick-based composer and arranger Denis Carey on piano. Their repertoire emphasizes Irish music, but don’t be surprised if they toss in a few arrangements of American Old-Time, Bluegrass, French-Canadian, and other Celtic tunes. Check out their Saturday Lotus set and discover why the Irish American News calls them the Instrumental Band of the Decade.
