The first time I heard the Elders was at a big party. They had donated a night of music as part of party package for an auction and a friend of ours had the winning bid. It was sooo much fun. Looking back it is not surprising the band has since become a Celtic Rock Super Group.
The 6 member band proudly declares they were founded in 1998. Lead vocalist Ian Byrne hails from Ireland but the rest of the band are “American, Kansas City and Midwestern –bonded by a love of all things Irish.”
It’s lucky for us that they found one another. Here are the Elders singing a song about Irish girls; it has the lyrics so you can singalong which along with drinking a green beer or two is guaranteed to set irish eyes a’smiling.
PS: Happy Birthday Jacqueline!
