The Bantry Boys
Saturday, March 10, 1:00-5:00pm
The Bantry Boys, a local Irish-American band, who have been playing together since 1981, will be entertaining on Saturday, March 10 from 1-5pm. Three of the current group, Jimmy Dwyer, Bill Dwyer and Mike Brady are original members. The fourth member, Eric Pedrotty, joined the band four years ago. They have played primarily in the New Jersey and New York area, but have also performed in Ireland and in other European countries on occasion. Their use of harmonies and Eric's tin whistle set them apart. From toe-tapping singalongs to doleful ballads, the Bantry Boys will make you think you're on the Emerald Isle itself.
