The Lost Brothers at Celtic Connections 2009 (MP3)

My favorite part of Celtic Connections was what they call the Festival Club, an after-hours showcase stage featuring various incarnations of whatever bands show up. You never know when a spontaneous jam session might break out, or who might walk out onto the stage. It might be Bela Fleck. Or Tim O’Brien. Or the Lost Brothers.

Here’s a great new band from northern Ireland that we heard at the Club, actually a duo I think, and they added a drummer that night. The Lost Brothers sing poppy original songs that feature lovely two-part harmonies over mellow acoustic guitars. Although the music is modern, they somehow invoke a time gone by, resting gently between the Everly Brothers and the classic brother duets of early bluegrass. Enjoy this MP3 and video.
