The Irish Buskers!
The Irish Buskers is a five-person Celtic music band that plays some songs that are traditional, some that are melodic and sweet, some well-known sing-along pub songs, some raucous noisy bits, and a few original songs.
The Buskers' set list includes everything from the traditional instrumentals Planxty Irwin and Irish Washerwoman to the well-known Raglan Road and Wild Mountain Thyme to the raucous Some Say the Devil is Dead and the Pogues’ The Boys from the County Hell.
The Buskers have been known to throw in a few limericks (mostly PG-rated) at performances.
The Irish Buskers formed in Tampa in 2007 as a six-person band. Founding Busker John Hooper moved to Texas in 2008. Since forming to play a St. Patrick’s Day event, the Buskers have performed around the Tampa Bay area, tending to be busiest in March.
In February 2010 the Buskers recorded a demo CD of 10 songs, including eight covers and two Busker originals. The album is called (wait for it….) "The Irish Buskers".
