The Spirited Lads play the tunes that you can’t resist singing along with; before you know it you are clapping your hands and stomping your feet to the infectious music. With stirring vocal harmonies complemented with acoustic instruments, the Lads liven up the room immediately.
Drawing from the legacy of great Irish folk songs and ballads, The Spirited Lads play the right balance of the sad songs, the sweet songs, the roaring songs, the whiskey songs, the sailing songs. They carry on the tradition of groups like The Clancy Brothers, The Dubliners; and balladeers like Christy Moore and Paul Brady. The Lads delight both those that recall those artists and songs, and the new generation who are new to the history and legacy of the great Irish Music tradition.
