Brock McGuire Band
The Brock McGuire Band is fronted by Moving Cloud founding members Paul Brock and Manus McGuire. Residing in County Clare, button accordionist and melodeonist Brock and fiddler McGuire are two of Ireland’s most celebrated traditional musicians and have been at the forefront of Irish music for many years through their joint work with Moving Cloud. Manus is also a founding member of Buttons & Bows, and both bands, ranking among Ireland’s finest, have helped to introduce international audiences to the virtuosity of their playing.
Performing with the Brock McGuire Band are two outstanding musicians: Dublin based Garry O’Meara, a brilliant banjo, mandolin player & vocalist; and Denis Carey, an acclaimed pianist, composer and arranger from Newport, County Tipperary.
Brock McGuire Band’s new CD collaboration “GREEN GRASS BLUE GRASS” with 14–time Grammy Award Winner Ricky Skaggs, has been hailed as “A Masterpiece” by American Music critic Bill Margeson.
