All new show on Wednesday night 2/13/13/ with long time friend Sean Griffin from The Ruffians calling in . Been a couple of years since last seeing him. We'll find out what he's got going on. Wednesday night 8 pm EST 2/13/13

I also have some recordings from the last Sandy Seisiun held at An Beal Bocht in the Bronx .

In a downtown Irish pub in New York City, 1998, The Ruffians were formed. Brothers Sean (guitar, vocals, bodhran) and Dan Griffin (bass, b vocals, bones) joined creative forces with Jerome Morris (drums, percussion), and Kevin Meehan (button accordion) to create the kind of energy associated with bands like The Pogues, The Dropkick Murphys, Blur, and Flogging Molly. The Ruffians are accompanied by some of the areas finest traditional players.

Sean plays guitar and handles the singer/songwriter duties as well as most managerial duties and bookings. He’s a dirty, filthy pirate, but we love him anyways. His writing depicts the joys and sorrows of being human, and his working class sensibility can relate to Irish, English, and Americans alike. You can find him at most bars in NYC, as well as some traditional seisiúns in the Bronx.
