The Drunken Gaugers
Kevin Crawford - Dylan Foley - Patrick Doocey
BBR002

 

Three of America's favourite musicians unite to produce The Drunken Gaugers, funny as none of them drink! They take the name for a set dance, associated with Clare fiddle master, Bobby Casey.

Kevin Crawford is one of the finest young flute players in Irish traditional music today. He is internationally acclaimed member of top Irish band, Lunasa. Nowadays based in New York, he still tours with Lunasa, and various other musical outfits. On this disc he has rounded up two of his regular collaborators, New York fiddle master, Dylan Foley and guitarist Patrick Doocy under the guise of The Drunken Gaugers.

Dylan Foley is  4-time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion, who has delighted audiences from Lincoln Center to the  Austin Celtic Festival, and from the mayor’s Gracie Mansion in NYC  to Irish Television channels RTE and TG4.  In 2013, Foley traveled with Mick Moloney to Vietnam as part of Irish Aid, bringing Irish music and culture to those who were affected by the horrors of the Vietnam War.  Dylan is in demand as a teacher and performer at the major Irish music summer camps on both sides of the Atlantic. He is a member of The Yanks, the hot trad band that has been called” the next Irish American dream team”.  Dylan is committed to passing on the tradition, as it was graciously passed to him, by the incomparable Rose Flanagan and others. You can hear his passion for the music is in his lively and fluid playing.
"One the finest Irish fiddlers of his generation.” – Brian Conway
