The Black Brothers at Freight & Salvage

March 17 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

The repertoire of the Brothers is very broad and includes old Dublin street songs, stories of emigration and history, folk songs from the Irish, English and Scottish traditions, along with music from contemporary writers. Shay and Michael are close harmony singers, and they have a special fondness for songs that include their audience in chorus. The performances often include a lot of up-tempo reels and jigs, and sometimes some mighty fine dancing, which brings added excitement to every concert. Each show is interspersed with stories, jokes and humorous childhood anecdotes, so that audiences invariably leave their concerts smiling broadly and humming new choruses.

Shay and Michael Black are now touring the U.S. regularly. The brothers have recently been joined by piano player, Eamonn Flynn. The band is rounded out by accordion player Félim Egan. These fine musicians are sure to bring energy and liveliness to the music of the Black Brothers.
