The Finns     


The Finns are a highly successful folk music duo from Laois, Ireland, brothers Hugh and Ciaran Finn. Their roots lie in traditional Irish music but their original songs have been described as alt-folk roots, or indie folk music, with strong hints of rock. They have incredibly catchy, lovable, and seriously impressive original songs that are easy to fall for and they cover Irish folk classics and sea shanties like no other band. This has allowed them to travel the world with massive popularity especially in the USA. The Finns have released a host of successful singles off their debut and charting No. 1 album “Creations”, which has turned heads with the highest quality of production involved produced by The Finns. Their second album Remember This Day released in Autumn 2023 is produced by Bill Shanley and is making huge waves through the Irish music industry with so many strong songs. The Finns play banjos, guitars, percussion, bouzouki, tenor guitars and harmonicas making the live set very interesting and with their strong harmonies shining through, the brother vibe is very enjoyable to watch as they entertain very organically.
