Brothers Brían and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn grew up playing music together around their hometown of Carlow. After moving to Dublin in 2012, they quickly became a staple of the live music and session scene in Ireland, playing their own original songs as well as folk songs from Ireland, Scotland, England and America.
Since then, they have been busy touring Ireland, the UK and Europe, opening for acts such as Villagers, Roy Harper and Lisa Hannigan. They have also played sold out headline shows in Ireland, Paris, Geneva, and Solothurn, Switzerland. They have made numerous television and live radio appearances in Ireland
Expect harmony rich folk music, influenced by Irish traditional music, Appalachian singing, and the 1960’s folk revival. Ye Vagabonds’ album features mellow tracks weaved with thoughtful lyrics, thickly layered with strings and droning harmonium.
