It has been said that Ireland punches above its weight musically, and that would be correct to some extent. We do produce a lot of bands. Many are good, and a lot more are terrible.
When you think of musicians from Carlow, who do you think of? Just Richie Kavanagh? Surely there are better examples. That’s what I’ll try and explore, and because Ireland is small, and lots of people move to the cities, I’ll cheat a little bit. If a band is based in Dublin, for example, but the musicians are from other counties, I’ll tip my hat to those counties. I haven’t even begun to research this idea, but it should be fun. 32 counties. North and south. Some will be better than others.
