ABOUT IRISH TRADITION

The Irish Tradition play music and sing songs with passion, pleasure, and virtuosity. Their sound is as refreshing as anything you’ll ever hear, yet they are infused with a sense of history and a singular commitment to the traditional music they love to play. A glorious ensemble sound.

Born of the musical union of British fiddle virtuoso Brendan Mulvihill and New Yorker accordion virtuoso Billy McComisky, Irish Tradition recorded two albums for Green Linnet Records, The Corner House (1978), and The Times We’ve Had (1985), produced by Irish guitarist Mick Moloney.

McComiskey and Mulvihill first performed together during a week-long Washington DC Irish festival in 1975 with guitarist/vocalist Andy O’Brien. The trio soon became a permanent fixture in Washington, DC, playing five nights a week for four years. Their musical collaboration spurned many new projects including Irish-American bands Celtic Thunder, the Hags, and Boiling Spuds.
