BROCKMCGUIREBAND Named Traditional Irish Band of the Decade by theIrish American News, multi-award winningBrock McGuire Band is fronted by two of Irelands most celebrated traditional musicians: button accordionist and melodeonist Paul Brock and fiddler Manus McGuire. The band also includes multi-instrumentalist Dave Curley (banjo, mandolin, bodhran, vocals and dance) and acclaimed pianist, composer and arranger Denis Carey.A beacon of passion and precision, integrity and diversity, Brock McGuire Band is steeped in the Irish musical tradition yet seamlessly incorporates elements from American old time, bluegrass, French-Canadian, and other Celtic traditions to create something accessible, recognizable, beautiful, and entirely unique. This ability is exemplified in the bands most recent album Green Grass Blue Grass, featuring with 14-time Grammy Award winner Ricky Skaggs. American music critic Bill Margeson has hailed the collaboration as a masterpiece.
PAUL BROCKA multiple All-Ireland champion born in Athlone, County Westmeath, and now residing in Ennis, County Clare, Paul pursued a solo career through the 60s and 70s by mastering the single-row, two-row, three-row, and five-row button accordions. His collaborations with fiddle player Frankie Gavin during the 70s and 80s culminated in their 1986 Gael-Linn classic recording, A Tribute to Joe Cooley, regarded by critics and fellow musicians as one of the outstanding traditional albums of the modern era.
Pauls solo album, Mo Chairdin (Gael-Linn ), was described in the Rough Guide to Irish Music as a modern masterpiece of accordion music. In May 1989, Paul co-founded the group Moving Cloud with Manus McGuire. This Clare-based band produced two albums for Green Linnet Records, including their 1994 self-titled release that was selected by well-known U.S.
music critic Earle Hitchner as the best Irish traditional album of that year. Pauls CD collaboration Humdinger (Compass Records, COM 4455) with Enda Scahill was voted Irish Music Album of the Year by the Irish Times and Instrumental Album of the Year by the Irish American News. Paul has appeared as a special guest of the Chieftains on various occasions.
Pauls illustrated lecture Irish Traditional Music in America The Golden Era has been widely acclaimed. Paul F. Wells, Director, Center for Popular Music, Middle Tennessee State University said Paul Brocks lecture, Irish Traditional Music in America: The Golden Era, was a terrific adjunct to the performance by the Brock McGuire Band. Concise, authoritative, and engagingly-presented, it was a wonderful survey of a vastly important period in the history of Irish music.
