Shay and Michael Black, of the Black Brothers Band, are singing siblings from Ireland’s foremost family of song, The Black Family. Hailed in the Irish Echo as “one of the most impressive groups of Irish singers to be found anywhere; exquisite, exhilarating and nothing short of thrilling” they raise their sibling rivalry to revelry. The Black Brothers Band’s musical lineup also features button accordion virtuoso, Félim Egan and keyboardist, Eamonn Flynn. At their concerts one can expect to hear Irish traditional ballads, Dublin street songs, music hall ditties, contemporary folk compositions, rollicking reels & joyful jigs. Their music is interspersed with comic stories, jokes & humorous childhood anecdotes that invariably have audiences smiling broadly & joining in on the choruses. Shay and Michael are close harmony singers, with a special fondness for songs that include their audience in chorus, and many of the songs are narratives with stories.
