Singer/guitarist Patrick O’Gorman had previously toured with Dick Farrelly and Paul Moore, members of the Van Morrison band. Banjo player Anthony “Titch” Warde was awarded a gold disc for “Dancing At The Crossroads” which was a number 1 hit in Ireland in 1996.Over the years the band has been joined live onstage by Ronnie Drew of The Dubliners, Chieftains founder Paddy Moloney and Bob Geldof.
