The Burren Boys

This evocative group draws together musical influences from Ireland, Brittany, the Balkans, and a touch of good old rock ’n roll. They show up with a variety of instruments - fiddle, whistles, low whistles, bouzouki, banjo, guitar, bodhran, djembe and bass - and play traditional and original tunes. They have also been known to favor their listeners with occasional songs sung in Irish as well as English.

New CDTheir arrangements weave together traditional and modern influences, and range from full-tilt reels and jigs to airs and quieter sets. When they play ceilis, everyone gets up to dance.

The band has shared the stage with such Celtic notables as Kila, Setanta and Cathy Ryan (of Cherish the Ladies), and has played for folk festivals, dances, and pubs around the Pacific Northwest. Their CD, The Western Shore, can be purchased through cdbaby and is also available online at iTunes and Amazon.
