John and Joe are self-styled singers, multi-instrumentalist musicians and composers. They have a solid command of many folk instruments including, but not limited to: guitar, pennywhistle, fiddle, banjo, octave mandolin, harmonica, uilleann pipes, bodhran and ukulele. Their wide repertoire ranges from Irish folk ballads to original contemporary folk, bluegrass, and acoustic blues. They are at ease with their audiences and have a knack for finding humor in the moment and sharing it spontaneously.
Hosts of friends and family all over the globe have long supported their music and John and Joe have been awarded recognition by the mayor of Rochester, NY (Bill Johnson), as well as Comhaltas Ceoltiori Erin, Rochester City School District, Rochester City Council, Monroe County Special Olympics, and the Maplewood Neighborhood Association. Just this year, The Rochester St. Patrick's Day Parade honored John and Joe with The Community Leaders of the Year Award.
A partial list of prestigious performers they’ve shared a stage with includes Rick Danko (The Band), Ani DiFranco, Jay Unger and Molly Mason, The Clancy Brothers, Danny O’Flaherty, Kate Wolf, Arlo Guthrie, Paddy Keenan (The Bothy Band), Will Millar (Irish Rovers), Bill Staines, Janet Harbison, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Cathy Ryan, Tommy Makem and Liam Clancy, Eric Bogle, Mike Cross, John Hume (Nobel Peace Prize winner) and Robin and Linda Williams.
As Tommy Makem so eloquently put it, “The Dady Brothers have it all – taste, talent, and dedication. Taste to write and select good material; talent to perform that material excellently, to the delight of their audiences; and dedication to keep their material and performances to the highest standards.”
A night at a Dady Brothers concert is sure to tickle your musical fancy and set your toes to tapping! And, yes, there will be good craic, sing-alongs and general carrying on!
