This group caught my attention as I was strolling down Grafton Street in Dublin on Friday evening. Looking like they’d escaped from the backwoods of the Appalachians or the love children of Seasick Steve, they played a very infectious modern take on traditional Irish music mixed in with other influences including Eastern European folk (some of the band members are from Poland, Lithuania and Ukraine ), rock and reggae.

They busk around and about Dublin and sometimes tour around Europe. On Friday evening they attracted a significant, enthusiastic crowd. Definitely worth catching.
