Young Ireland is a newcomer to the Irish music scene, based in the Central Coast of California. "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."
