You can catch them at a lot of the music venues in town.

The Blarney Brogues are Craig Thompson, Matt Malloy, Zach Hanner, and last but certainly not least the incredibly talented Rachel Tisdale. They play an exciting mix of Irish Trad, Celtic, Irish Punk, and originals. This Irish combo brings the sounds of the Emerald Isle to the Port City. Originals and classics from ILM's fantastic Irish group.
