Boston’s Irish rebel band “Érin Og” is following in the footsteps of the great Irish rebel legends such as the Wolfetones, Irish Brigade, Athenrye, Eire Og, Shebeen, Charlie and the Bhoys, and Spirit of Freedom, to name just a few.
Their politically charged message of Irish freedom has roused Irish and Irish-American audiences alike all over the Boston area from Southie and Dorchester to Quincy and Marshfield.
Érin Og is composed of band members Bobby Mullis from Medford, MA vocals/whistle. Frankie Kelly (formerly of Ulster rebel band "Spirit of Freedom") mandolin/banjo/vocals, from Letterkenny, Donegal.
David "Quick Draw" Mcgrath from Coolock, Dublin, Ire. vocals/guitar/mandolin, and Ronnie Aviles from Boston fiddle/guitar/vocals.
Drawing from years of experience playing Irish rebel music, Érin Og have united together to form a veritable tour-de-force of Irish rebel folk music in the Boston area.
Mixing mandolin, fiddle, tin whistle, and driving acoustic guitar rhythms, along with powerful vocal harmonies, Érin Og has shown their commitment to the great tradition of Irish rebel music by recently performing at such Irish Republican events such as the Bloody Sunday Commemoration at the Plough and Stars in Cambridge, and the Easter Rising and Hungerstrike Commemorations held in South Boston and sponsored by the Boston Irish Northern Aid (INA).
