Not just for the Irish: Modern Irish traditional folk band Ar Dheis Folk Group celebrated St Patrick’s Day at Someplace Else, The Park, on Monday with a number of Irish folk songs. Pairing banjo and tin whistle with fiddle and guitar, the band performed traditional music with origins in County Clare, a county in Ireland. Founded by Josh ’ Loughlin (banjo, mandolin, guitar) and Brian Corry (whistle, flute), the band has expanded its sound by adding a percussionist, a singer, a fiddle player and a guitarist to the line-up. The band’s influences range from Mumford & Sons to the 1980s Irish folk band Moving Hearts. Picture: Rashbehari Das
