Brock-McGuire Band best traditional Irish music group worldwide? Yes.

Is the Brock-McGuire Band the best traditional Irish music group in the world? Yes.

​Musicians from the iconic Ricky Skaggs (with whom the band made a huge, award-winning album) to Bryan Sutton, to all of us on LiveIreland agree. Worldwide, there is no more respected group. The vid we include here also features a fabulous step dance from banjo player, Dave Curley. It was recorded at a house party in upstate New York a few months ago.This is the real drop. The deal. Fun! They are based out of the west of Ireland. WAY back in the day, button box icon, Paul Brock and fiddler, Manus McGuire founded Moving Cloud. If you know Irish music, you know them. Just about as perfect as it gets. Stunners.
