IRISH NIGHT: The Napper Tandies

Wednesday - November, 17 @ 7:30pm

The Napper Tandies have been playing music together for nigh on twenty years, thrilling audiences with their particular brand of Irish music. Consisting primarily of piano accordion, banjo, bouzouki, and upright bass, the lads put their own particular stamp on classics such as Whiskey In The Jar, The Leaving of Liverpool, and many more favorites associated with the like of The Dubliners, The Clancy Brothers, and The Pogues.

Chris Brinn, Matt Smith, and Randy Billings met in a brewery back in the fall of 2000. After discovering a mutual affinity for Irish folk songs, the three decided to work together combining their expansive repertoire of classic melodies, and thus The Napper Tandies were born. Taking their name from the founder of the United Irishmen, the lads have been working together and thrilling audiences ever since.
