For fifteen years, the Broken String Band have been purveying great bluegrass, roots and string band music. Local musicians Michael Ashe (banjo and vocals), Ivan Muirhead (guitar and vocals), Philip Steele (bass and vocals), John Fitzpatrick (fiddle) and Adrian Muirhead (mandolin) all play with energy, enthusiasm and feeling.
The band have played at many major events and festivals, in Belfast and beyond, from private parties to ‘The One Show’. Their eclectic repertoire – from Doc Watson to Aerosmith – keeps the ears interested, the feet tapping and the craic mighty.
