The Bog Band is a group of young musicians with a passion for traditional Irish music and dance. The group began some fifteen years ago at the Washington Waldorf School, where director Mitch Fanning taught violin. Most of the members are middle and high school students living in the Greater Washington D.C. area.
Over the years and even now, fiddles remain the focus, but the band has also featured a variety of other traditional Irish instruments including guitar, bouzouki, bodhran drum), flute, Uilleann pipes, tin whistle, banjo, button accordion and piano. Many members have competed and placed at a variety of local and regional traditional Irish music competitions. Some have competed in the “all-Ireland”Fleadh Cheoil nahÉireann. --bogband.com
