The Alan Kelly Gang:

Fronted by Ireland’s piano accordion maestro and with three critically acclaimed masters of their craft in tow, the Alan Kelly Gang sit firmly at the cutting edge of the traditional and world music scene. Hailed by international critics for their consummate musicianship and powerful, emotive performance, they deliver a unique and diverse perspective to the Celtic repertoire, amalgamating a musical dialogue that spans the Celtic countries, all the while with Ireland sternly at its helm. With powerful instrumentals and vocals, strong dynamics, driving rhythms and buoyant harmonies, their music will draw even the most fainthearted listener into the passion that they put into the music they play.
