The Lancashire Irish Band - Irish Band

This Lancashire Irish band consists of three fantastic musicians and vocalists who can play harmonica, flute, Uilleann pipes, banjo, guitar and percussionist between them. They can be booked as a duo (advertised fee), trio or quartet and are happy to perform anywhere in the North West and beyond.

Matt is an accomplished harmonica and flute player who is as much at home playing Irish traditional music as he is the blues. (He won the British Blues Harmonica Championship when he was only twenty-one). As well as being a master of the harmonica, he is also a fine singer and uilleann piper.

The 2nd player is a superb singer, one of the best interpreters of traditional song on these shores and a skilled, dynamic guitar player, equally adept at accompanying vocals and instrumental music.

The 3rd player is one of the best bluegrass banjo players this country has ever produced and he's also a dab hand at playing Irish traditional music as well. His spirited, soulful picking gives a great lift to the music.

The 4th player is a brilliant percussionist, equally adept on bodhran, cajon, congas and a host of other instruments. Drawing on a huge range of influences, from Irish traditional music to Brazilian Samba, he conveys an irresistible drive and energy to everything he plays on!

The Lancashire Irish Band - Irish Band Feedback

Top class honestly, brilliant entertainment proper good authentic Irish music. Great night will be booking again. 100%

Lewis Hindley, Shrigley Hall Hotel (June 2022)

The band were amazing. Played the songs we asked, kept encouraging people to get up to dance which eventually paid off. We really enjoyed having them as part of our day and will definitely book them again.

Andrew Morgan, Castle Green Hotel, Kendal (June 2022)

Yes they were excellent and were very well received - a great night

Robert Blessett, (February 2022)

No problem with the booking process at all. The act were very very communicative and punctual. They even played some songs that were not in their normal reperrtoire by my request (they learned the songs especially for us). The lead singers voice was amazing. My Irish colleague who the event was for was amazed at the proper traditional Irish music they played. She said it is so hard to learn. To sum up amazing, really nice guys and would have them back without a shadow of a doubt

Paula Walsh, Bolton (December 2021)
