About The Tour
Ireland's ever popular band The Saw Doctors are renowned for creating party-like atmospheres with their raucous blend of Irish roots rock. Hailing from Tuam, County Galway, the quintet's principle players notched a string of singles in their native land with "I Useta Lover," "Bless Me Father" and "N-17" in the late 80's, and have been bringing their energetic live shows stateside for the better part of twenty five years. In the summer of 2013 they decided to take some well-deserved time off.
Leo and Anto launched their first acoustic tour here in the US in the fall of 2013. Now the two musicians and friends will be back this spring with their acoustic tour once again. Says Leo, "Touring with just the two of us is all new and fresh and challenging and scary and exciting at the same time." This is the third time they visit the US and, due to popular demand, they will be hitting more cities, many of which will be for the first time. They have released two new CDs for their acoustic tour, "Pushin' It" and "Flyin' It," which have received great reviews from the music press.
Since their first shows together, Leo and Anto have toured parts of Europe, the UK, and the US, and most recently played in of some of the most remote parts of Russia. On New Year's Eve 2014 the BBC recorded a live version of Leo Moran's song and popular Saw Doctors hit, "Clare Island," backed by the Scottish group Skipinnish with Anto playing the sax solo.
