Fannigan's Isle

Fannigan's Islehome bio press tour dates website

Fannigan's Isle is one of the few, if not the only American acts to be carrying on the tradition brought to America's shores by the Clancy Brothers, the Irish Rovers, and the man they credit as their 'founding inspiration, Tommy Makem. Based in Dayton, Ohio, Rick Fannin and Tom Scheidt, collectively known as Fannigan's Isle, have been entertaining audiences throughout the Midwest with their masterful command of the Bar Irish tradition for the last thirteen years. Pick up where the Clancys left off, throw in the exuberance of the Kingston Trio, instrumental skills developed over years of practice, and a repertoire drawn from the Clancys to compositions by fine songwriters like Andy Stewart and Stan Rogers, and the power and diversity of Fannigan's Isle reveals itself. Between Tom and Rick, 13 different instruments appear on their albums, including guitar, banjo, bagpipes, tin whistle, bodhran, cittern, and many more.
