The IAHC Fall Concert Series continues with The Drowsy Lads.

The Drowsy Lads thundered onto the Irish music scene in the US more than 15 years ago and have become fan favorites at every turn. 2018 brought the release of their 4th album, Everyone In.

Ohio brothers John and Daniel McKewen, father and son Phil and Josh Franck and lifelong friend Bryan Brookes bring to the stage a mix of Irish dance tunes and the full gamut of songs and good humor. Their authentic approach and deep enjoyment of people is a refreshing surprise to both casual music-lovers and those steeped in hardcore Trad.

The band features multi-instrumentalists, and the combined lineup includes fiddle, button accordion, tenor banjo, flute, whistle, guitar, bouzouki, Uilleann pipes, 5-string banjo, concertina and bodhran.

The Lads create their own spirited arrangements and offer occasional original compositions, even mixing in some bits of Bluegrass or classical music.

The Drowsy Lads perform on Friday, October 25 at 8pm in the Fifth Province. The concert is FREE.
