Young Ireland is "Authentic!" hails the New Times of San Luis Obispo. Diane Byrnes, veteran Irish radio host ("Echoes of Erin" in Pittsburgh, PA) says, "Huge success is just over the horizon for 'Young Ireland' and for those who love Irish music, 'Young Ireland' is a testament to the strength and musicality of the 'song'." First and second generation Irish Americans with County Mayo roots, this father-son duo writes and performs original songs reflecting the spirit of the Irish struggles and traditions in both Ireland and America from the 1600's to modern day. Their acoustic music is driven by "skillfully crafted ballads and delicate harmonies in a richly Irish tradition." At age fourteen, Michael O'Hara sings with the "heart of an old soul."
Young Ireland is joined by fiddler Paul Oyler for this special event. Paul trained as a classical violinist starting at age six to twelve before moving on to folk style fiddle playing. At 17, Paul began pursuing the craft of improvisation, which he has honed over the past 10+ years, delighting audiences with wonderful melodies and fiddle solos.
