About the Band

Blame Not the Bard is on a mission: to bring the stories of Ireland alive...and to have fun doing it.

Featuring a broad range of Irish songs, fiery fiddling, and their very own one-man-band, this young eastern Iowa trio plays with the kind of energy that makes it tough to believe they're not a bigger group. Whether you fancy a jazzy twist on "My Son John," an energetic take on "Finnegan's Wake," or the more traditional stylings of the classic, "Whiskey in the Jar," Blame Not the Bard is sure to have something for everyone.
