"Irish music has an energy that wakes me like no other" says Fiach O'Connor!
Fiach was in a band playing high energy live trad gigs in Dublin with Ciaran Finn and James O'Connor, who have played and felt the same way about it for years.
"It's not blood that runs in the veins of The Irish, It's music" says James.
Not only have they the same love for Irish music, but they also share a passion for great rock'n'roll!
Not easily mixed together one would think!
The three boys met a young folk/rock singer Eoghan McNeill in a Dublin pub one early Saturday afternoon and from that day on, everything was different.
Lashing out the best rock music on Irish instruments with strong vocal harmonies is where it’s all at!
With Eoghans powerful raspy vocals & bass playing, Ciarans lightning rhythm guitar & fiddle, Fiachs bouzouki & bodhran skills and James on the amazing accordion & harmonica, in the May of 2011, a beautiful and very strange music was born.
The New Free!
A new way of thinking and free to do what ever!
And "turning everything on its head and doin what we want, rather than what we are told", is the motto.
