This Wednesday July 2nd 8pm SOME GOOD CRAIC is excited to have as musical guest Tom Lanigan . Tom will be calling in to chat and we will play some of his bands tunes for the first time on the show.
Tom Lanigan was born in Dublin, Ireland and moved to America when he was
sixteen. He grew up developing a great love for both Irish and American music. In the early 90’s, he started the folk/rock band Screaming Under Stars, which went on to open for The Commitments and Black 47. Since then Tom has been working full time, often in a band capacity but he has developed an extensive solo schedule also. He has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with acts such as Solas, Makem & Spain, The High Kings and Derek Warfield and the Young Wolfetones. Playing 5 nights a week for the last 10 years from Connecticut to Vermont, Tom has recently played The Canton Irish Music festival, The Worcester Irish Music festival and The Dorchester Irish Music festival. In addition to the countless numbers of bars, theaters and concert halls along the way, Tom has developed a strong following with his unique take on traditional and contemporary Irish music, and his ever growing collection of original compositions. Moving forward, Tom continues to share his passion for Irish music while entertaining audiences throughout New England.

Their sound has its own distinctive mix between old Irish folklore and the rock pop Celtic Music of today .
Boston's Erin Og, based in Boston Ma., possibly the most Irish city in the USA. Boston's" Erin Og" translates to Young Ireland and with good reason, BEO is the next generation of Irish ballad groups. BEO continues the legacy of Irish music left to the world by such great bands of the past as the Dubliners, Wolfetones, and Clancy Bros. .
Known in the past as "Boston's Irish Rebel Band". BEO sang and continue to sing the songs of Irelands struggle through 800 years of oppression. They have since broadened their repitoire to included all aspects of Irish folk music.
(They say the wars over, but we still have hope)
Together BEO have united the best of Boston's Irish music scene, mixing fiddle, tin whistle, driving acoustic guitar rythms, and powerful vocal harmonies, a veritable tour-de-force of Irish Folk music.
BEO have covered a lot of ground in thier relatively short time together, traveling the length of the USA, from being featured in an episode of the international hit TV show "Ghost Hunter's" in Paddy Rielly's in Manhattan to an eight gig stint in "Ri Ra Mandalay Bay" Las Vegas. BEO continues it's foray into New York City and all over New England with monthly gigs, and will surely be coming to your town soon. BEO's rollicking performance, and soulfull ballads should not be missed, they draw the audience in and make everyone a part of the band.
