Brock McGuire Band - Straight from Ireland! (with a little help from Mithril)
The award winning Brock McGuire Band from Ireland returns to the University of South Alabama Laidlaw Performing Arts Center Recital Hall. Fans who attended their previous sold out performances know this is a performance you will not want to miss! Mobile's own Celtic band MITHRIL will open this fantastic musical evening.

The BROCK McGUIRE BAND is fronted by Moving Cloud founding members Paul Brock and Manus McGuire. Residing in County Clare, button accordionist and melodeonist Paul Brock and fiddler Manus McGuire are two of Ireland's most celebrated traditional musicians and have been at the forefront of Irish music for many years through their joint work with Moving Cloud. Manus is also a founding member of Buttons & Bows, and both bands, ranking among Ireland's finest, have helped to introduce international audiences to the virtuosity of their playing.

Performing with the BROCK McGUIRE BAND are two outstanding musicians: Dublin based Garry O'Meara, a brilliant banjo, mandolin player & vocalist; and Denis Carey, an acclaimed pianist, composer and arranger from Newport, County Tipperary.

Passion and precision, authenticity and diversity: these are the hallmarks of the BROCK McGUIRE BAND in concert. They are steeped in tradition and perform it with abiding respect and creativity. The band's repertoire runs wide and deep; their tight, tenacious blend of instruments emphasizing mostly Irish music but also sprinkling in impressive arrangements of American Old Timey, Bluegrass, French-Canadian, and other Celtic traditions.

BROCK MCGUIRE BAND'S new CD collaboration "GREEN GRASS BLUE GRASS" with 14time Grammy Award Winner Ricky Skaggs, has been hailed as "A Masterpiece" by American Music critic Bill Margeson.
