Paul Brock Band
Paul Brock Band features four of Ireland’s leading musicians: Paul Brock on accordion from Ennis, Co.Clare; Tipperary-born Denis Carey on piano; Clare-born and now St. Louis based Eimear Arkins on fiddle, song, and dance ; and Manchester’s Shane Farrell on banjo, fiddle, bodhran, guitar, mandolin, and song. A beacon of passion and precision, integrity and diversity, Paul Brock Band is steeped in the Irish musical tradition and yet manages to seamlessly, effortlessly blend and fold in elements from American old time and bluegrass, French-Canadian, and other Celtic traditions to create something accessible, recognizable, beautiful, and entirely unique. This ability is exemplified in the band’s most recent album, Green Grass Blue Grass, featuring 14-time Grammy Award winner Ricky Skaggs. American music critic Bill Margeson has hailed the collaboration as a “masterpiece”. The band and its members have been the recipients of numerous awards including ‘Best Instrumental Band of the Decade’
