Blaggards shake, shock, and rock traditional Irish music it to give it a Texas-tinged flavor all its own. Their high-flying sensibility tips its hat to The Pogues and Dropkick Murphys, ignoring stale green beer in favor of stout Irish rock. The tight vocal harmonies of Dubliner Patrick Devlin and Chad Smalley are supported by the accomplished fiddling of Chris Buckley, who has won awards in the Midwestern Fleadh Cheoil and competed in two All-Ireland world competitions, and the rock steady beats of first-generation Scots-American Michael McAloon, a gold medal-winning Irish step-dancer. The Blaggards bring their music to the homeland with annual tours to Ireland!
