The Finns are a folk duo from Ireland, brothers Hugh and Ciaran Finn. Their original songs have been described as incredibly catchy and lovable, with a hint of blues and rock. Their debut album, Creations has been a massive success in the charts and media along with the four singles taken from the album.
"My Home Town" was chosen by RTE and Creative Ireland for the TV and radio advert in 2018. Also, released on retro cassette tape.
"Freemind" was the sole representative from Ireland in the final of the 2018 SongDoor International Songwriting Competition.
Debut single, "Lambay", was adopted by Irish whiskey brand, Lambay Whiskey, to spearhead some of their marketing campaigns.
The Finns' version of "El Condor Pasa" was described by online music magazine PureMzine as "...a riveting four and a half minute folk affair".
The Finns are a completely independent band, and with the quality of work involved, there's a certain bright future ahead. Already highly experienced with many festivals and gigs throughout Europe and America, and hundreds in Ireland, their fanbase continues to rise. They have gained this reward by their professionalism to everything they do and their honest connection with their audiences at live gigs and online.
Ciarán combines the percussive beats accompanied with outstanding rhythmic guitar playing and also adds harmonicas on top. The lyrics ,written by both brothers, are new, fresh and original, and are backed up by effective chord progressions and catchy hooks with Hugh on tenor guitar and banjo. Harmonies are a strong element of their songs and with the brother vibe, their voices strongly compliment each other.
