Socks in the Frying Pan
The band comprises two brothers, Shane and Fiachra Hayes on accordion and fiddle/banjo and accompanied by Aodán Coyne on guitar and vocals.
This young trad trio from County Clare blend Irish traditional melodies with and innovative rhythmic and melodic garnish. These socks are audibly palatable! As for the inevitable question of where the name originated? This is yet to be disclosed!
Having gained a fan-base from four years of gigging around the west of Ireland, this exciting group have recently started branching out and have been well received for their modern traditional style and energetic approach to music. This, combined with an acoustic musical interplay, three-part harmony and an obvious love for live performance, compliments the traditional essence of both tune and songs in a fresh and entertaining way. Their debut CD was launched at the Ennis Trad Festival in November and was received very well with an audience exceeding the capacity of the venue. The CD itself offers a dozen lovingly crafted tracks which the lads are eager to showcase both on the album and at their musically charged gigs.
