The Muck Brothers Friday July 10, 2015 6:30pm ‪#‎IAHF‬ ‪#‎IrishAmericanHeritageFestival‬ ‪#‎IrishAmericanHeritageCenter‬ ‪#‎muckbrothers‬

The Muck Brothers craft a unique style of rock music steeped in the traditional Irish sounds of their native country, Ireland. Their music, which ranges from traditional Irish tunes to contemporary rock, showcases the diversity of the band member’s talent. During the past 10 plus years, The Muck Brothers have been a staple performance at Chicago’s top venues, attracting hundreds of loyal fans from all over the midwest. With two albums out, hopefully a third will be in the works soon. This Chicago based band features vocalist Frank Quinn on guitar, Mike Buckley on fiddle, Aidan O’Toole on vocals, bodhran, bass and guitar, Kevin Moran on flute and sax, and Joe Fitzgerald on Drums.

Thanks – Anish & Academy of Irish Music! #irishmusic


Thanks again to our Friday Night headliners, Anish, who gave a very fine account of themselves by playing over two solid hours of songs and tunes. It was nice to see these guys re-creating and adding to the sounds that made them a stalwart in the late 90s and early-mid 2000s. They still bring it!



And also a great big thanks to the young men and women of the Academy of Irish Music, who opened with a beautiful set of their own arrangements for winds and strings.

Thanks to the Francis O’Neill Ceili and Set Dancing Club for listing tonight’s Salon Concert in their Newletter:

“ANISH – IAHC – Friday, February 13
“Join us for a great evening of traditional Irish music with Chicago band, ANISH.
Friday, 8:00 – 10:00 PM ANISH is a three piece group from Chicago featuring Aidan O’Toole on guitar and vocals, Chris Bain on fiddle and Jackie Moran on percussion and banjo.

The group plays tunes with a energetic modern flair and mix with contemporary songs treated to a more acoustic organic touch.

Aidan O’Toole hails from Galway City, Ireland, but has called Chicago his home for the past 20 years. Playing with his band Anish, solo shows, as well as his other bands The Muck Brothers and Tin Lynott, he has put his footprint into the Chicago Irish music scene at venues such as Martyrs, Navy Pier, The Curragh, Ballydoyle Pubs, and Celtic Crossing” (pictured are two members of the Club dancing at the first Salon Concert with Chicago Reel in 2013)
