The Black Brothers

The Black Brothers at the Freight for St. Patrick's dayCelebrate St. Patrick’s Day with The Black Brothers at the Freight and Salvage on Friday, March 17th, at 8 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. 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.
