Socks in the Frying Pan
Just saw these guys play at Don Quixote’s International Music Hall in Felton, CA (also played in San Francisco and Marin during this first time to the U.S). Fantastic energy and lovely three-part harmonies!
The band comprises two brothers, Shane and Fiachra Hayes on accordion and fiddle/banjo and accompanied by Aodan Coyne on guitar and vocals. The young trad trio from County Clare blend Irish traditional melodies with an innovative rhythmic and melodic garnish. Having gained a fan base from four years of gigging around the west of Ireland, this exciting group have recently started branching out and have been well received for their modern traditional style and energetic approach to the music. This, combined with an acoustic musical performance, compliments the traditional essence of both tune and songs in a fresh and entertaining way.
CD released in 2012.
