Randall Stephen Hall and Brendan T. Monaghan
bring a certain something to the stage.
A broad fusion of styles and musical genres.
From Irish Trad, Folk, Scots humour to Blues and Gospel.
All mainly new, original material that draws up from the well
of the Folk Tradition. “FOLK and FUSION.”
Stephen was discovered by Gerry Anderson as far back as 2010
playing many of his tracks from his first CD “Songs from the MoonShed”
which introduced such tracks as “The Wee Wee man “, “Biscuits”, ‘Get Yer Pig On”
“The Langstaine”, “The Reiver and the Gael” and “Dancing on the red Road”.
He has now produced three CDs with another due out in the Summer of 2019.
As a “go to” musician Brendan Monaghan has shared many a stage with some very well known
musicians over the years. Doc Watson, Kris Kristofferson, Nancy Griffith and Emmy Lou Harris.
A multi-instrumentalist Brendan plays the whistles, Irish Low Flute, Bodhrán and Uilleann Pipes, to name but a few.
All in all Stephen and Brendan can kick up the dust, entertaining any listening audience.
