The band comprises two brothers, Shane and Fiachra Hayes on accordion and fiddle/banjo and accompanied by Aodán Coyne on guitar and vocals.
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 music. This, combined with an acoustic musical interplay, three-part harmony and an obvious love for live performance, compliments the traditional essence of both tune and songs in a fresh and entertaining way.

Their debut CD was launched at the Ennis Trad Festival in November and was received very well with an audience exceeding the capacity of the venue. The CD itself offers a dozen lovingly crafted tracks which the lads are eager to showcase both on the album and at their musically charged gigs.
“Well you won’t hear a better name than this and the music is just as damn good… It’s most
definitely fresh and marks another potential album of the year in the making” (Tony Lawless – Trad Connect)
