the Alan Kelly Gang
Ireland

Alan Kelly.jpgFronted by Ireland's piano accordion maestro, described by New York's Irish Voice as 'in league with the best piano accordionists in the world', and with three of Ireland's finest musicians {Tola Custy (fiddle), Steph Geremia (flute & vocals) and Tony Byrne (guitar)} all critically acclaimed masters of their own craft, The Alan Kelly Gang (formerly quartet) has been creating quite a stir on the traditional & folk circuit taking their audiences by storm and impressing both music lover and critic alike.  Performing beautifully arranged songs and instrumental pieces from throughout the Celtic regions including Ireland, Brittany, Asturias and Louisiana as well as original compositions that stem from a deep traditional sensitivity, skillfully executed and soulfully delivered, their sound is fresh and unique with their strong dynamics, driving rhythms and buoyant harmonies. Their music will draw even the most fainthearted listener into the passion that they put into the music they play - magical,  joyous and uplifting!  "The arrangements are world class, as are the musicians, and Ireland is always somewhere in the mix." Irish Music Magazine 

One of Ireland's most accomplished musicians in any genre, Alan Kelly is piano accordionist, composer and arranger utterly at home in his own skin. To date, Alan has released four critically acclaimed albums including his most recent solo venture, 'After the Morning', named as one of the 'top ten musical highs of 2009' by the Irish Times who described it as a "humdinger of a collection". In September of this year the Alan Kelly Gang released their first band album titled ' Small Towns and Famous Nights".
