Growing up in Belfast in the 70’s the FOS brothers fuse an eclectic mix of their own original songs with traditional Irish sensibilities flavoured liberally with Floydian/Genesis/Horslipian spices.
Their mix drums, percussion Loops and samples and soaring guitars and bass delight Festival and Venue audiences and that’s even before they start singing! – New CD Clear Again was mastered by Simon Heyworth of Mike Oldfield’s famed production. – Bucolic folk has a psychedelic head-fit.
The line up is :
Sam McCrory – Vocals, Guitar
Dave McCrory – Acoustic and Electric Guitar, Mandolin, Bass
Rom Dobbs – Drums, percussion, samples and loops
Pete Bingham – Bass
“A stirring fusion of original and traditional songs on hypnotic acoustic guitars to 21st century dance grooves.”
(Steve Knightley – Show of Hands)
“Caught your set at the Eden Project and it just blew me away. Bought the album and have been listening to it ever since”.
“The FOS brothers have become an institution in this town. Every time they play here I get requests to have them again, their blend of intelligent, funny, and moving songs always goes down well with our audience.”
(DeclanConnolly – SPAN Arts, Queens Hall, Narberth)
