The Sunday Club Presents: The McCrory Brothers | zondag, 12. juli 2020

Growing up in Belfast in the 70’s the McCrory brothers fuse an eclectic mix of their own original songs with traditional Irish sensibilities flavoured liberally with Floydian/Genesis/Horslipian spices.



Usually seen these days with their 4 piece band The FOS Brothers, this is a trip back to their roots of playing the clubs and festivals as a duo.

There is a certain freedom when dispensing with the full band and concentrating on guitar interplay and the message of the songs.

Much of their material is sourced from traditional and contemporary Irish writers, the most romantic and poetic songsmiths in the world.





TESTIMONAILS



Highly recommended to lovers of folk with a progressive world music twist. In full flow the McCrory Brothers are phenomenal and never loose touch of their Irish roots.

(Tony Colvill)



What a blast!The brothers surpassed all expectations, with spacey, technicolour arrangements of both new and traditional songs, they have a great touch whether a lilting irish number or something a bit more psychedelic. A brilliant night at No8. Long live LIVE music!

(NO8 Launceston, Cornwall)



There's an identifiable genre developing, acoustically biased groups playing mostly original material, a pleasant emphasis on momentum provided by acoustic rhythm guitar, mandolin and percussion The Brothers are typical, with well wrought songs sustaining the interest and tapping of the lower extremities.
