The FOS Brothers / Acoustic, Folk, Live Entertainment, Live Music, Rock

Thu 17Oct
9:00 PM

Note: This event has finished


The FOS Brothers are Dave and Sam McCrory from East Belfast, N.Ireland,Together they create a unique soundscape of acoustic music heavily influenced by their Irish roots. They Have been performing for over 15 years at Festivals, Arts Centres….. all sorts of venues in the UK and abroad

This Belfast-born duo, who are actually brothers, are worth checking out for their guitar sound alone. The pair had a unique haunting musical interplay at this gig, in the same way that Thin Lizzy or the All-man Brothers were able to create double the magic by using twin guitars. Their intriguing set list was also something a bit special, including their own self-penned material, Irish folk songs and classics by rock legends such as Tom Waits. Some of the numbers were deeply atmospheric, conjuring up dark country roads and moonlit nights, while others were laid-back pub singalongs. There was also plenty of friendly banter with the audience, in contrast to the melodic sensitivity of some of their songs. Definitely worth a listen for something very different to the average pub covers band. (Catherine Whatson Express & Echo)

Caught your set at the Eden Project and it just blew me away. Bought the album and have been listening to it ever since. (Denis Taylor)

The FOS brothers have played on our stage at Glastonbury every year for the last 10 years and still pack the house with their superb musicianship and sublime vocals. (Andy Hope, Croissant Neuf, Glastonbury Festival)

The Band has a musicality and flexibility that is rare among the plethora of mediocre Folk/Rock Bands around. Additionally the brothers are Irish, and this prevailing influence, gives a genuine Celtic flavour to the music. I will be booking them again, both here and at my other venues and highly recommend them. (Dave Bassett – The Butter market Jazz & Roots Club, Shrewsbury)

The FOS brothers have become an institution in this town. Every time they play here I get requests to have them again, their blend of intelligent, funny, and moving songs always goes down well with our audience. (DeclanConnolly – SPAN Arts, Queens Hall, Narberth)
