The Mighty Craic

The three musicians making up The Mighty Craic come from totally different musical backgrounds – Bill Fahy (vocals, guitar, mandolin) played bluegrass, swing and country; Amanda Straney (vocals, fiddle) is more classically trained, performing with the Hamilton Orchestra; and Jessica Hilterbrandt (percussion, accordion) is a drummer with the popular rock band, Crazy Fools. Although having performed several times at the festival as members of Craobh Dugan and the Blarney Rebel Band, this appearance marks their GAIF debut as a trio.
