The highly anticipated duo Ye Vagabonds will make their North American debut on Friday, Feb. 7 at the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center, 2133 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee, at 7:30 p.m. Born in Carlow in the southeast of Ireland and now based in Dublin, brothers Brian and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn accompany their rich harmonies, traditional Irish music, Appalachian- style singing and 1960s folk influenced songs on bouzouki, guitar and mandolin. They began touring internationally and opening for some of the biggest names in Irish music beginning in 2015 and have played sold out shows in Ireland, the United Kingdom and Europe. Along with television and live radio appearances in Ireland, they were part of Imagining Home, a live broadcast concert in the National Concert Hall of Ireland in 2016. The duo was named the 2019 Best Folk Group, won Best Folk Album for their third album The Hare’s Lament and won Best Traditional Track for “The Foggy Dew” by the prestigious RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards. “Understandably, the applause continues long after they’ve taken their leave. It’s a well-deserved response for these uniquely talented Dublin-based brothers.” - “folk radio” Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 on concert day.
